A grand ceremony was held Tuesday in Lhasa to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the peaceful liberation of Tibet.

More than 20,000 people rallied at the Potala Palace Square as Vice President Xi Jinping delivered a speech, pledging to lead Tibet into a prosperous future under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Xi, heading a 59-member central government delegation to attend the anniversary celebration, presented to Tibet's top officials a gold-plated plaque bearing an inscription by President Hu Jintao congratulating the region on the 60th anniversary of its peaceful liberation.
