China Observes Date of Japan’s Surrender – Joseph Kahn

From the New York Times:

China commemorated the 60th anniversary of Japan’s World War II defeat on Saturday, saying “the just had prevailed against the evil” back then but denying any military ambitions today.

President Hu Jintao used the occasion to emphasize that China’s economic and military power is not directed against Japan or the United States, despite a budding rivalry with both countries.
