They are still advancing in a spirit of bravery and spirit and heading for the new socialist modernization country in an all-round way, and continue to forge ahead with Chinas dream of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

On the morning of October 23, 2020, representatives from all walks of life gathered in the Great Hall of the people in Beijing to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Chinese peoples Volunteer Armys war against US aggression and aid Korea.
This is the highest standard of commemorative commemoration - Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, chairman of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, attended the meeting and delivered an important speech.
This is a time of great attention - hundreds of millions of people look back on the heroic epic of magnificent mountains and rivers, and stir up the great power to forge ahead in the new era.
Among them, there are valiant generals who have won special merit, battle heroes who have been wounded many times, medical staff who rescue the dying and wounded, and battlefield reporters who go deep into the line of fire The oldest is 95 and the youngest is 83. These old soldiers and comrades, though grey haired, are still hale and hearty.
I thank the CPC Central Committee and the General Secretary for their concern for the veteran soldiers and comrades, and for the honor given by the party and the people. The peace and tranquility now is the blood of the martyrs. The honor belongs to all the martyrs! On the battlefield of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea, Li Yannian led his comrades in arms to recapture the lost Highlands, withstood the enemys repeated counter attacks, and won special merit. At the moment, his eyes are bright, just as bold and resolute as he was then.
In the auditorium of the peoples Congress, the atmosphere was solemn and warm.
Leading comrades of all departments of the party, government and army of the Central Committee of the CPC Central Committee and the all China Federation of industry and Commerce and representatives of personages without party affiliation, representatives of officers and soldiers of the PLA and the armed police force, and representatives of the masses from all walks of life in the capital The delegates were seated in turn.
When the representatives of veteran soldiers, old comrades and the families of martyrs of the volunteer army entered the meeting hall, people all stood up at the same time to pay tribute to the peoples heroes who fought against US aggression and aid Korea and defended the country, as well as the glorious years of fierce war and arduous hardships.
In the war 70 years ago, there was a great disparity between the two sides. Under extremely asymmetric and extremely difficult circumstances, the Chinese peoples Volunteer Army cooperated closely with the Korean army and people, fighting the first battle of liangshuidong, fierce battle of Yunshan City, meeting of Qingchuan River, fierce battle of Changjin lake and bloody battle of Shangganling It has created a majestic war. The people of all ethnic groups in China sincerely praise the officers and men of the volunteer army as the most lovely people!
After 70 years of baptism, the memory of history has never faded.
So many comrades in arms have died, and they will never return to the motherland... Fan Zhilun, an 85 year old volunteer soldier who had participated in the Shangganling campaign, stroked the commemorative badge on his chest, and his eyes were wet red. I always think of them over the years. We, the living, are here today on their behalf.
At 10 oclock sharp, the commemorative meeting began. The majestic March of the volunteers resounded through the audience.
71 years ago, it was with this battle song that the peoples Republic of China was founded. However, only a year later, the War reached the Sino Korean border, and the imperialist aggressors imposed the war on the Chinese people. After two years and nine months, the new peoples Republic of China won the great victory of the war of resisting US aggression and aiding Korea under extremely difficult conditions. It showed the spirit of the Chinese people and demonstrated the great power status of new China.
The heroic spirit of heaven and earth is still awe inspiring.
In the sound of the national anthem, veteran soldiers stroked their medals on their chest, and many of them shed tears.
After the national anthem was sung, all the participants paid a silent tribute to the martyrs who died bravely in the war of resisting US aggression and aiding Korea.
Over the past 70 years, people have always remembered the martyrs who died bravely in the great war of resisting US aggression and aiding Korea for the sake of the motherland, the people and peace.
In the warm applause, general secretary Xi Jinping delivered an important speech.
It comprehensively reviews and summarizes the great victory and great contribution of the war of resisting US aggression and aiding Korea, profoundly expounds the historical significance and time value of the great spirit of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea, incisively reveals the historical enlightenment of the war, and solemnly declares the firm position and will to safeguard national territorial sovereignty and unity, safeguard regional and world peace and stability, and promote the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind.

Today, in the face of the great changes that have not taken place in a century, the young people of our generation should also carry forward the spirit of struggle and compose a song of youth in the new era for the realization of the two centenary goals.
In the war 70 years ago, the former generation of the volunteer army, who had less steel and more gas, defeated the strong enemy. Now we have more steel and more gas At the scene, President Xi Jinping listened to the important speech of the chairman of the Navy. Zhao Wei, a cadre of the Navy, was very excited. The revolutionary soldiers of the new era should inherit and carry forward the spirit of the great resistance to the Korean aggression and aid the United States, remember the mission of the beginning, focus on preparing for war, and practice hard to win the battle, and contribute to the realization of Chinas dream of strengthening the army.
