Xinhua: China set to bolster space security, nuclear capacity: Draft law
BEIJING, June 24 (Xinhua) — Chinese lawmakers are mulling the inclusion of security of China’s activities and assets in space, on the international sea bed and in polar regions in a draft law, the latest move to improve the legal framework protecting national security.

The draft national security law — tabled for a third reading on Wednesday by the top legislature, the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, — said China would “peacefully explore and exploit outer space, international sea bed areas and polar regions”.

The country will build entry and exit security, develop scientific capacity, enhance international cooperation, and safeguard activity and asset security on “new strategic frontiers”, it read.

Meanwhile, the draft also said response and defense capacities against nuclear threats and attacks would be stepped up.

China will peacefully utilize nuclear power and nuclear technology, prevent nuclear proliferation, improve its non-proliferation mechanism, and step up management, supervision and protection of nuclear activities, facilities, materials and waste, the draft law read.

It will also improve nuclear-accident emergency response capacities and mechanisms, in order to “prevent, contain and eliminate the damage imposed on citizens’ lives and the environment by nuclear accidents,” it said.

Meanwhile, the draft law also said China would protect and improve its “comprehensive grain production capacity”, to ensure grain supply and quality, while underscoring nationwide efforts to safeguard national unity, ethnic solidarity and social stability.

BEIJING, June 24 (Xinhua) — China has announced a parade through Tian’anmen Square on Sept. 3, a glorious event that has been 70 years in the making.

The parade commemorating the end of World War II, will feature veterans, families of the fallen and possibly foreign militaries and leaders.

The war may have ended in 1945, but the Chinese nation is paying a solemn tribute to millions of people sacrificed for the first time.

President Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, will speak at the event and present medals to representatives of war veterans and relatives of the dead.

Honor has finally come for the veterans, most of whom are over 90. As soldiers who had risked their lives fighting for freedom, they have long hoped for such state recognition. More veterans pass away every day, and for many, this anniversary will be the last they see.

Kuomintang (KMT) veterans have also been invited to take part in the parade, demonstrating the CPC’s respect for history, fully recognizing the contribution by the KMT to China’s victory. Japan signed its formal surrender on Sept. 2, 1945 but KMT forces led by Chiang Kai-shek, were defeated in a civil war by the CPC and fled to Taiwan in 1949.

Active Chinese units, including the Eighth Route Army, New Fourth Army, Northeast China Anti-Japanese United Forces and South China Guerrillas, will be reviewed in the parade. Equipment and armaments on show will be mainly domestic and in active service, many of which will be having their first public outing.

The Chinese people’s war against Japanese aggression was a significant part of the WWII as the major oriental theater. China defeated the Japanese invaders, killing more than 1.5 million their troops, as a concerted aspect of the Allied campaign, and paid a great price, with more than 35 million casualties.

It is hoped that countries can shelve their differences at this time and promote a diverse international society of exchange and integration, abandoning prejudice just as they did in World War II and fighting side by side for a future of common destiny.
