Wang Yi:Take 70th Anniversary of Victory of Anti-Fascist War as Opportunity to Create a More Peaceful Future for Human Society
2015/01/29

On January 28, 2015, Foreign Minister Wang Yi met in Beijing with visiting Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman of Israel.

Wang Yi said that 27th January was the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and political heavyweights as well as representatives of various countries including Israel attended the commemoration at the site of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp in Poland. We paid close attention to the commemoration in China. Both the tragedy of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp in Europe and the Nanjing Massacre in China are the darkest pages in human history and trampled basic human rights as well as righteousness and justice. Many countries and their peoples, including the Jewish people and the Chinese people, had suffered invasion by Fascism and militarism, and helped and supported each other in the anti-fascist war.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the victory of the world anti-fascist war, serving as an important opportunity for us to review the history and look into the future. The true understanding and reconciliation should be built on the correct acknowledgement of history. We are willing to look ahead but the historical facts should not be ignored and the right and wrong should not be confused. The Chinese people will take the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the victory of the world anti-fascist war as an opportunity and join hands with all the peace-loving people around the world to remember historical lessons and safeguard the outcome of the Second World War to create a more peaceful future for human society.
