BEIJING - Beijing will tighten parcel mail security as the city counts down to the Sept 3 military parade commemorating World War II victory, the State Post Bureau (SPB) said in a statement on Sunday.

Every single postal package must be mailed using real names and go through a security check, said SPB chief Ma Junsheng at an internal meeting.

Ma asked all departments to increase inspection of delivery companies to ensure postal security in the capital. Neighboring provinces have also been required to strengthen safety supervision for parcels.

China has scheduled a series of events to mark the 70th anniversary of the victory in the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression, culminating in a military parade on Sept 3 in Beijing.

The municipal government has adopted other measures, including limiting cars on streets and industrial production, to improve air quality during the celebration.
