外文标题：China mulls days to remember defeat of Japan, Nanjing Massacre
BEIJING: China is considering designating formal national days of remembrance to commemorate Japan's defeat in World War II and the Nanjing Massacre, state media reported Tuesday, amid bitter disputes over territory and history.
The National People's Congress (NPC) is mulling making September 3 "Victory Day of the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression", the official Xinhua news agency said, citing the legislature.
Lawmakers are also considering designating December 13 as a "national memorial day to commemorate those killed by Japanese aggressors during the Nanjing Massacre in the 1930s", Xinhua reported.
In both cases, a "draft decision" will be debated during a bi-monthly session of the NPC Standing Committee from Tuesday until Thursday, Xinhua added.
The rubber-stamp parliament is scheduled to meet next month in full session, but the standing committee has the authority to approve decisions on its own.
The NPC's website did not immediately carry information on the proposal, which comes amid a serious worsening in relations between China and Japan.
At the end of World War II Japan's then emperor Hirohito ordered his country to surrender on August 15, 1945, days after the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

I am surprised that China does not have days of remembrance for the things that happened in that awful war. Unless every day is a day of remembrance.
It is very reasonable for China to do this. China has been trying to forgive Japs and waived all war compensation for Japs's crimes in China during the ww2 in the past. But that good gesture was considered as weakness by Japs. China hasn't done this until today full proves that China was not using nationalism against Japs before. Now that Japs is challenging the world order and China has to change the attitute accordingly.

Great idea China. Continue to insult Japan and you will end up with a major military power with a nuclear deterrent capability, at your front door.
China's Nationalism to be based on hatred of Japan.....
Dragon has become crazy to do any thing which can hurt J and J should make his own missiles and nuclear bombs for deterrence.

China should also remember the day Chinese Military defeated Indian forces in 1962. That day should be declared the National Day of remembrance s well. USA can not tolerate China rise as a 'super power'. USA is using Japan, India and Vietnam to destabilize China and occupy Chinese Territory. S.Korea, The Philippines and Australia are smart they are keeping out of it.
