BEIJING, June 23. /TASS/. A military parade on the occasion of the 70th anniversary since the Chinese People’s victory over the Japanese invaders in the Sino-Japanese War of 1937 to 1945 and victory over Nazism will be held in Beijing on September 3, the deputy chief of publicity department of the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Commission, Wang Shiming said on Tuesday.

"The parade will be held on Tiananmen Square on September 3," he said. President Xi Jinping will attend the event in the course of which he will decorate the veterans of combat operations, veterans of the home front and members of families of the war heroes who have passed away.

A high-rank general on the General Staff of the People’s Liberation Army of China said the organizers would also demonstrate Army technologies, some of them for the first time.

Announcement about the first-ever parade on the anniversary of victory over Japan was made in March. Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected to be among the guests at the event and the Chinese government also plans inviting U.S. President, Barack Obama and other world leaders.

On March 19, the chief of Russian President’s Administration staff, Sergei Ivanov told reporters President Putin would visit Beijing in September to take part in the events devoted to victory in World War II.
