BEIJING, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- A Foreign Ministry official on Thursday urged Japanese leaders to face and reflect honestly on Japan's aggression history.

The official made the remarks in a statement following China's top legislature approval of two national days to mark victory in the anti-Japanese war and to commemorate victims of the Nanjing Massacre.

"The approval of the national days has great historical significance and is a necessity in current circumstances," said the official.

September 3 was set as victory day and December 13 as memorial day, at the bi-monthly session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, which runs from Tuesday to Thursday.

"We urge Japanese leaders to face squarely and reflect on Japan's aggression history with a highly responsible attitude toward history, the people and the future, to correct their mistakes and change their course, "said the official.
