On hand were Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs Kim Yong Il, Chinese Ambassador to the DPRK Wu Donghe and Military Attache Yang Xilian and staff members of the Chinese embassy.
    On the occasion Kim Yong Nam said that the Chinese party and government organized the volunteers with fine sons and daughters of the Chinese people and dispatched them to the Korean front when the Korean people were undergoing the grimmest ordeals. The Korean people will always remember the feats performed by the martyrs of the Chinese People's Volunteers in the Korean war, he noted.
    The Korea-China friendly relations provided by the leaders of the old generation of the two countries are growing stronger under the deep care of leader Kim Jong Il and President Hu Jintao, he added.
    Shao Hua expressed heartfelt thanks to Kim Jong Il for having paid particular attention to their visit.
    Referring to the fact that the CPV participated in the Korean war under the banner of "resisting America and aiding Korea, safeguarding the home and defending the motherland", she said that she came to Korea together with children of fallen fighters so as to make them know how precious is the blood shed by their predecessors.
