BEIJING, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- President Hu Jintao's speech at the ceremony marking the 100th anniversary of the 1911 Revolution has been published in traditional Chinese, according to a statement issued Monday by the publisher.

The People's Publishing House said the traditional Chinese version of the speech will be distributed overseas by the China International Book Trading Corporation.

Earlier, the simplified Chinese version of the speech was published by the same publisher.

China held a high-profile ceremony on Oct. 9 at the Great Hall of the People to commemorate the 1911 Revolution, or Xinhai Revolution.

Beginning on Oct. 10, 1911 with a series of uprisings, the Revolution toppled the Qing Dynasty, ending more than 2,000 years of imperial rule and giving birth to the first republic in Asia.

Hu, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, spoke highly of the revolution in his speech, saying it was "a thoroughly modern, national and democratic revolution."

Hu eulogized Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the leader of the revolution, as "a great national hero, a great patriot and a great leader of the Chinese democratic revolution."

Hu said the rejuvenation of China must be achieved by adhering to socialism with Chinese characteristics and by upholding peace, development and cooperation.

Hu also called for the peaceful reunification of the motherland.
