Liu Hongcai, the Chinese ambassador to the DPRK, laid wreaths at the cemetery for the CPV martyears. All of the diplomats at the embassy and representatives of Chinese enterprises and students in the DPRK also paid tribute to the martyears.

Earlier Tuesday, the Chinese diplomats also paid tribute to the CPV martyears at the Tower of DPRK-China Friendship in Pyongyang.

The CPV entered the Korean War to help the DPRK people resist US aggression on October 25, 1950, about four months after the conflict broke out. Tens of thousands of CPV soldiers died during the war that ended in 1953.
