Zhao Xinli • 114 •

2017 is the 45th anniversary of normalization of China-Japan relations and the 80th anniversary of Marco Polo Bridge Incident. Well-read people of both China and Japan are trying to learn from lessons of history, protecting the peace between China and Japan. Earlier back in Yan’an, while CPC actively fought against the Japanese army, it also actively promoted peace, attempting to divide Japanese army and accelerate its defeat in a peaceful manner. The peace thoughts were fully presented in Mao Zedong’s On Protracted War, and were successfully put into practice through school for Japanese workers and farmers who were educated as captives. The peace thoughts was at certain level influenced by international Communism, but also closely related to China’s traditional peace-loving thought since ancient times.
