KUALA LUMPUR, July 4 -- The historical materials exhibition of the 75th anniversary of overseas Chinese mechanicians antiJapanese aggression activity in Sarawak and the new version of "The Stories of Heroes" were launched lately.
Consul General of China in Kuching, Malaysia, Liu Quan attended the events.
He said Japanese militarism started the aggression against China 77 years ago, which is a big disaster to the people of China and Southeast Asia.
At the crucial moment of national peril, overseas Chinese mechanicians gave up everything and bravely joined the great warfare of saving the Chinese nation.
He said, they transported munitions and supported the frontline of the war. Over 1,800 of them died in glory for the final victory of the Chinese nation.
He noted some Japanese politicians and right-wing forces have publicly denied the history of aggression, beautifying militarism. This kind of action betrays the truth of history and humanity, and has caused concern and vigilance among the international community.
He said, the success of the World War II will not be allowed challenged, and the post-war international order must be maintained, and urged Japan to take history as a mirror and look forward into the future.
"We cannot forget the contribution from each of our heroes. We should carry forward their great anti-war spirit and love the peace environment they fought for. We wish all the surviving heroes health and long lives," he said.
