The 100th anniversary of China's 1911 Revolution, or the Xinhai Revolution, was celebrated here on Friday with a seminar held by Chinese Embassy in Vietnam and Institute of Chinese Studies under the Vietnamese Academy of Social Sciences.

At the seminar, Chinese ambassador to Vietnam Sun Guoxiang said that the Xinhai Revolution, which overthrew the Qing dynasty, put an end to the centuries-old feudal system in China and opened the door to democracy, is an important milestone in Chinese history.

He said the leader of the revolution, Dr. Sun Yat-sen, and other Chinese revolutionaries have undertaken revolutionary work in Vietnam and been supported by Vietnamese people.

China and Vietnam share many similarities as they are both socialist countries led by communist parties. China is willing to strengthen solidarity, cooperation and mutual support with Vietnamese side, bringing benefits to the peoples of both countries, Sun said.

Vo Khanh Vinh, vice president of Vietnamese Academy of Social Sciences said the 1911 Revolution and Dr. Sun Yat-sen's doctrine has profound influence on the Vietnamese revolutionary movement and patriots in the early 20th century.
