A delegation of senior Chinese military officers, led by Guo Boxiong, vice chairman of China's Central Military Commission, arrived here Saturday for a four-day visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

The delegation will attend activities to mark the 60th anniversary of the entry of the Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV) into the Korean front, according to Geng Yansheng, a spokesman of China's Ministry of National Defense.

Guo and his delegation will also meet with the DPRK's national and military leaders to exchange opinions on issues of common concern, Geng said on Friday.

The CPV entered the DPRK on Oct. 25, 1950, about four months after the Korean War broke out.

At a reception held Friday by the DPRK Embassy in Beijing to mark the anniversary, Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie praised the great contribution of the CPV in the war and the friendship forged between the two peoples.

The China-DPRK relations have stood the test of constant changes in the international arena and have made new development in the new century, Liang said.

In an article marking the anniversary, the DPRK's official KCNA news agency said Thursday that the CPV not only displayed a spirit of self-sacrifice and heroism in the war but also promoted friendship with the Korean people.
