The leaders of all member-countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) have confirmed that they will attend the commemorative events in Beijing to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and China’s war with the Japanese invaders, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Cheng Guoping said on Friday.
