President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev has taken part in the military parade in Beijing in honor of the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the war against militarist Japan, a Tengrinews correspondent reports.

Apart from Nursultan Nazarbayev, the parade was attended by Vladimir Putin, Almazbek Atambayev, Alexander Lukashenko, Islam Karimov and other leaders, who arrived in China at the invitation of Xi Jinping. The leader of China personally met each president and escorted them to the place of observation.

The day before the parade, on September 2, Nursultan Nazarbayev congratulated the Chinese people on the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the war against militarist Japan. He delivered a lecture at the Central Party School of the Chinese Communist Party, stressing the fact that the WWII had ended in China.

"It is hard to overestimate the contribution of China to the victory in the World War II. Steadfastness and dedication shown by the Chinese people are the greatest examples of heroism and courage, valor and patriotism. In Kazakhstan also, more than 25 percent of the population were mobilized for the bloodiest war of the XX century. Many of them did not return home from the battlefields. There are those among them who rest in the soil of China," he said during the visit to the School.

The Kazakh President noted that many Kazakhstanis were mobilized to fight against the Kwangtung Army. Moreover, Kazakhstan provided foodstuffs for the war effort. He thanked the Chinese people for commemorating the fallen soldiers from Kazakhstan on the Memorial of the soldiers killed in the battles for the liberation of Chinese cities.

Today Kazakhstan has shown its solidarity with the Chinese people by sending its servicemen to take part in the parade. A silent drill team of the Airmobile troops walked on Tiananmen for Kazakhstan. Exemplary Kazakh army soldiers aged 22 to 28 years old were selected to represent Kazakhstan in the grand event.

Of the 32 teams that walked the square, 15 were Chinese and others were invited from 17 countries. Kazakhstanis paraded seventh among the foreign troops, including groups invited from Russia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Cuba, Mexico, Serbia and Egypt.

"We feel a great sense of pride that as a company of the honor guard of the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Kazakhstan we had the honor to represent Kazakhstan in the parade in China. We believe that we showed the power and beauty of the Kazakh army," said the commander of the company, captain Maksat Bayzhigitov.

After the march, about 500 units of ground combat equipment drove on the squire and about 200 planes and helicopters flew in the skies above the Chinese capital.
