BEIJING, April 8. /TASS/. Russia and China should preserve the memories of the Victory in the Second World War and join forces in maintaining peace on the globe, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Wednesday.
"As the countries where major World War II battles unfolded, China and Russia should support each other in holding commemorative events. This must be done to preserve memories of those events and consolidate peace today," she said.
The diplomat said that during his visit to Moscow Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had discussed with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov the two countries’ preparations for joint events to mark the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the Second World War.
The two countries’ leaders will exchange visits to take part in the celebrations. Chinese President Xi Jinping will arrive in Moscow in May, and Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit China in September.
