An exhibition marking the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression was held at the United Nations headquarters on Monday.

The exhibition, titled "Remembering for Peace", displayed many historical photos showcasing the efforts made in the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression.

"We would never want to see it (the scourge) again and we have an obligation to prevent it from happening," said Jan Eliasson, deputy secretary-general of the United Nations at the opening ceremony of the exhibition.

"It (the war) was of course an unspeakable series of horrible events, both on the battlefield and affecting civilians to a degree that had never happened in history," said Eliasson.

"70 years ago, the Chinese people, through painstaking struggles and with enormous sacrifices, ultimately defeated the atrocious aggression of the Japanese militarists and won the nation's first complete victory over foreign invaders in modern history," said Wang Min, China's deputy permanent representative to the UN, also at the opening ceremony.
