MOSCOW, March 19 /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit Beijing in September to take part in the celebrations of Victory in World War Two, Kremlin Administration Chief Sergey Ivanov told journalists on Thursday.
"We have very much in common in our approach to the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) and the end of WWII in September," Ivanov said adding that Russian President Vladimir Putin would visit Beijing at this time.
"Our joint struggle against fascism and militarism gives us the moral right to remember history once again, including the fact that four countries — the Soviet Union, Britain, the United States and China — formed the nucleus of the anti-Hitler coalition," the Kremlin spokesperson said.
Li Zhanshu, the head of the General Office of the Communist Party of China, clarified that the Beijing celebrations were scheduled for September 3.
"We are planning to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Victory in WWII and in the resistance to Japanese occupiers on September 3. We are inviting a high-level Russian delegation to these celebrations," Li Honshu said.
He added that China had invited a Russian military crew to take part in the parade in Beijing.
