Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday stresses carrying forward the spirit of the Chinese People’s Volunteers (CPV) army in the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea in the new era and determined to achieve national renascence.
Xi Jinping made the remarks while visiting an exhibition commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Chinese People’s Volunteers (CPV).
The Chinese People’s Volunteers (CPV) and the Chinese government determinedly made the historic decision to fight the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea seventy years ago. The CVC and the Chinese government decided to do so in order to safeguard peace and resist aggression, Xi stressed.
Notably, the CPV Army moved into North Korea to counter the US-led forces marching toward the Chinese border on October 19, 1950.
Xi said, holding high the banner of justice, the heroic CPV soldiers gallantly fought side by side with the DPRK’s people and army and won a great victory, making great contributions to world peace and human progress.
Xi stated the victory in the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea was a victory of justice, a victory of peace, and a victory of the people.
Xi demanded the in-depth study and publicity of the heroic deeds and revolutionary spirit of the CPV army to encourage the people of all ethnic groups to unite more closely around the CPC Central Committee.
The exhibition consists of seven parts, including a section on how the decision to send the army was made and a section on the significance and historical contributions of the victory.
With more than 540 pictures, over 1,900 relics, a large number of videos, and many recreated scenes, the exhibition features the important decision-making process, major events, key battles, and historical figures in the war.
