PYONGYANG, July 24 (Itar-Tass) - China’s delegation will take part in the celebrations in North Korea devoted to the 60th anniversary of the victory in the Korean War of 1950-1953, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Wednesday.
Chinese volunteers fought North Korea’s side during the three-year-long armed conflict on the Korean Peninsula. The delegations of Australia, New Zealand, Mongolia, Sweden, Ireland, Pakistan, Slovenia and other countries arrived in Pyongyang. Foreign guests lay wreaths at the monuments to Kim Il-sung Kim Jong-il and go sightseeing.
Schoolchildren present flowers to veterans of the Korean War. The North Korean parliament made public a decree under which over 47,000 citizens will be awarded with an order, which was founded by the 60th anniversary.
Different events have begun in Pyongyang and other cities. The North Korean leadership attaches much significance to these events - film festivals, photo and art exhibitions. The major events will take place on July 27 when the military parade and the working people’s demonstration take place. Key news agencies, including Itar-Tass, Xinhua, Reuters, France Press and Associated Press, will cover the celebrations. Foreign television companies, including Russian ones, are expected to arrive in North Korea. The Soviet Union provided support to North Korea in the 1950-1953 Korean War that led to numerous losses of lives. American air strikes demolished Pyongyang.
