BEIJING — More than ten foreign armies will march in China’s World War II memorial parade scheduled on Sept 3 in Beijing to mark the 70th anniversary of the victory of China’s resistance against Japan and the world anti-Fascist war, a military official said on Aug 21.

Russia and Kazakhstan and others will join, according to Qu Rui, deputy chief of the Operations Department of the General Staff Headquarters of the People’s Liberation Army.

He did not provide a full list of the countries, only saying that “countries that will send formations and representative teams to the parade are from all the continents of Asia, Europe, Africa, Oceania and America.”

“Their participation in the parade is a clear indication of the attitude of commemorating the victory of the world anti-fascist war jointly, and a symbol of the pursuit and aspiration to the enduring world peace,” he said.
