Pyongyang, October 25 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun today in an editorial article observes the 49th anniversary of the entry of the Chinese People’s Volunteers into the Korean front.
The article recalls that the Chinese party and government sent excellent sons and daughters of the Chinese people to the Korean front exactly 49 years ago under the banner of “resisting America and aiding Korea, safeguarding the home and defending the motherland” and helped the Korean people at the cost of blood in the just war to defend the freedom and independence of the country.
Noting that mountain ridges and heights of Korea are associated with the blood and feats of the fighters of the Chinese People’s Volunteers, the article stresses: their entry into the Korean front was a disinterested assistance by class brothers and revolutionary comrades-in-arms based on the sense of revolutionary obligation, which was a good example of proletarian internationalism, and a demonstration of the close militant bonds and solidarity between the two peoples of Korea and China.
The Korean people always remember their feats displayed in the Korean War and feel grateful to them. On this day they pay profound homage to the martyrs of the CPV who shed their blood and laid down their lives in the Korean War.
The peoples of Korea and china are close neighbors and the Korea-China friendship has long-standing deep historical roots.
The special friendly relations and the strong sense of revolutionary obligation forged by leaders of the previous generation of the two countries long ago guarantee the DPRK-China friendship.
Pointing out that it is the consistent stand of the Worker’s Party of Korea and government of the DPRK to strengthen and develop this friendship generation after generation, the article expresses the belief that the traditional friendship will further blossom thanks to the joint efforts of the two peoples.
