PYONGYANG, July 30 (Xinhua) -- Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), visited a cemetery on Monday to mourn fallen Chinese fighters in the Korean War, the official news agency KCNA reported on Tuesday.
Kim, together with senior officials, paid silent tribute to fallen fighters of the Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV), including Mao Anying, son of late Chinese leader Mao Zedong.
A wreath in the name of Kim Jong Un and a wreath in the name of the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea were laid before the cemetery and the grave of Mao, located in Hoechang County, South Phyongan Province.
"The noble self-sacrificing spirit of the fallen fighters of the CPV who devoted their precious lives on the Korean front will always be remembered by the service personnel and people of the DPRK," said Kim.
He underscored the need to preserve and manage well the Hoechang Cemetery, and set practical measures to spruce up all the cemeteries of fallen fighters of the CPV across the country.
Kim added that "it is the common responsibility, strong sense of moral obligation and mission of the two parties and two peoples of the DPRK and China to convey the revolutionary spirit and undying feats of the martyrs of the CPV down through generations."
He also visited the Songhung Revolutionary Site, where the Command of the CPV was located, nearby the Hoechang Cemetery.
