including those from Japan, to attend a military display in July to mark the 70th anniversary of the Republic of China’s victory over Japan in the Second Sino-Japanese War.

The eight-year war against Japan (1937-1945) was a part of World War II, in which Japan and the other Axis Powers of Nazi Germany and Italy were defeated.

The Ministry of National Defense is extending its invitation to foreign ambassadors, representatives and military attaches posted in Taiwan to the July 4 event at an Army base in Hukou, Hsinchu county, said Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Luo Shou-he.

Luo said that the ministry will send a formal invitation to the Japanese envoy in the coming days and has already contacted the Taipei Office of Japan’s Interchange Association to inform them of the event, he added.

An official at the Interchange Association told CNA that they had not received the invitation and thus could not comment on whether Japan’s representative to Taiwan, Mikio Numata, will attend.     [FULL  STORY]
