Chinese President Hu Jintao will attend World War Two Victory Day celebrations in Moscow on May 9, the Chinese Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday.

Hu will arrive in Moscow on May 8 for the 65th anniversary of the capitulation of Nazi forces.

Some 25 world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel are expected to attend the Red Square celebrations.

The parade will also see for the first time the participation of military units from Britain, the U.S. and France.
