Xinhua News Agency on Saturday published a commentator's article to mark the 65th anniversary of China's victory in the "War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression".

The article said the victory would continue to inspire the Chinese people to unite and work hard for the nation's peaceful development to benefit the entire human race.

"A country like China, which aims at peaceful development and the promotion of peace and harmony in the world, will make more contributions to the good fortune of the whole human race," said the commentator's article.

Having suffered wars and having gone through various difficulties, China is now standing up in the east of the world with sustained economic growth and social prosperity, it said.

While stressing development as the "most essential task," the editorial urged the Chinese people to unite under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in order to carry forward the hard-working spirit and determination shown in the past.

During the "War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression" (1937-1945), the CPC united the Chinese people to arduously fight against the Japanese invasion. Japan officially surrendered on Aug. 15, 1945.

"The history has taught us that the Party can only remain advanced, and be able to lead people to build a well-off society and realize the great revival of the Chinese nation, if it sticks to working for the public and ensures the fundamental benefits of people," said the article.
