On September 2, 2020, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai and Russian Ambassador to the United States Antonov published a joint signed article entitled “Remember History and Create the Future” on the Defense One website to commemorate the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression. The 75th anniversary of the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War.

On September 3, the Chinese people celebrated the great victory in the War of Resistance Against Japan, and Russia commemorated the end of the Second World War. On this day in 1945, the sun of peace once again shone on the earth. On the 75th anniversary of the victory of the Allied forces in World War II, we will remember the historic contributions of the ancestors of the two countries. At the same time, we would like to congratulate the representatives of the “greatest generation” of the United States, our ally at the time, and thank them for their self-sacrifice.

At this historical moment of the 75th anniversary of the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War, our joint article is an inheritance of the fine tradition of China and Russia to commemorate the victory together, and it is also an implementation of the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries. History is a mirror, we remember history and create the future.

China and Russia have made the right choice. The two countries will continue to unswervingly develop a comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination and commit to good-neighborly and friendly cooperation, promote global stability and security, and enhance the prosperity and well-being of all countries. We believe that learning from history, avoiding the recurrence of historical tragedies, and working together to open up a bright future is the best commemoration of the world’s anti-fascist war.
