Pyongyang, October 22 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, visited the cemetery of the martyrs of the Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV) in Hoechang County, South Phyongan Province, and paid a high tribute to them on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the entry of the Chinese People's Volunteers into the Korean front.

Present there were Choe Ryong Hae, Ri Pyong Chol and Kim Tok Hun, members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK, and Pak Jong Chon, Kim Jae Ryong, Ri Il Hwan and Kim Hyong Jun who are the members of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK.

Also present there were Foreign Minister Ri Son Gwon, Admiral Kim Myong Sik and Air Force General Kim Kwang Hyok, Ri Yong Chol, chairman of the Hoechang County Party committee, and Kim In Chol, chairman of the Hoechang County People's Committee.

The guard of honor of the Korean People's Army (KPA) lined up at the Cemetery of the Martyrs of the Chinese People's Volunteers.

As Kim Jong Un arrived before the monument to the CPV martyrs with the officials of the Party, the government and the military, the national anthems of the two countries were solemnly played.

Amid the playing of the wreath-laying music, a floral basket in the name of the Supreme Leader of our Party, state and armed forces and floral baskets in the names of the Central Committee of the WPK, the Central Military Commission of the WPK, the DPRK State Affairs Commission, the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK, the Cabinet of the DPRK and the Korean People's Army were laid at the monument to the CPV martyrs.

Written on the ribbons of the floral baskets were letters "Martyrs of the Chinese People's Volunteers will Be Immortal".

Kim Jong Un paid a silent tribute in memory of the CPV martyrs.

Then, he visited the grave of Mao Anying in the cemetery.

A floral basket in the name of Kim Jong Un was placed before the grave of Mao Anying.

Written on the ribbon of the floral basket were letters "To Martyr Mao Anying!"

He paid a tribute to Mao Anying.

He made a round of the cemetery together with leading officials of the Party, state and armed forces.

He said with deep emotion that even though 70 years have passed since the excellent sons and daughters of the fraternal Chinese people made an entry into the sacred Fatherland Liberation War fought by the Korean people, the immortal exploits and heroic feats made by the CPV by sacrificially supporting us under the banner of resisting America and aiding Korea, safeguarding the home and defending the motherland despite the very difficult situation remain vividly in the memory of our people.

Saying that the entry of the CPV into the Korean front was a historic contribution to the great victory in the Fatherland Liberation War, he noted that the great victory won by the armies and peoples of the DPRK and China while linking their destiny as one and sharing weal and woe with each other is, indeed, of great significance no matter how much water flows under the bridge.

Saying that every part of our country is closely associated with the red blood shed by the service personnel of the Chinese People's Volunteers who bravely fought in the sacred war against the imperialist aggressors, not being afraid of death, and dedicating their invaluable youth and lives to it, he stressed that our Party, government and people would never forget their noble soul and lofty self-sacrificing spirit forever. -0-
