BEIJING, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese government will hold commemorative activities as the 69th anniversary of winning the war against Japanese aggression approaches, the Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

"Relevant preparation is underway," said ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying. The anniversary of the victory of the Chinese people's war of resistance against Japanese aggression falls on Sept. 3.

To memorize the hardship and the dauntless struggles waged by the Chinese people in the anti-Japanese war, and to demonstrate China's will to safeguard peace and oppose aggression, the standing committee of the National People's Congress in February designated Sept. 3 as the victory day of the anti-Japanese war and Dec. 13 as the memorial day to commemorate over 300,000 Chinese killed by Japanese aggressors during the 1937 Nanjing Massacre, according to Hua.

Japan officially surrendered on Sept. 2, 1945, after the eight-year resistance by the Chinese people. China's anti-Japanese war was an important part of the World Anti-Fascist War.
