Russia is to honor Chinese veterans who worked in the Soviet Union during World War II, Moscow's top envoy to Beijing said on Wednesday.

Russian media outlet Sputnik quoted Ambassador Andrei Denisov as saying that President Xi Jinping will also be a chief guest at celebrations in Moscow marking the 70th anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War against Nazi Germany (1941-45).

The two moves are the latest indications of high-profile activities planned by China and Russia to mark the end of World War II, highlighting their close ties.
