BEIJING, July 29 (ChinaMil) -- To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the armistice that ended the Korean War (1950-1953), a performance group of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) arrived in Pyongyang, capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), on July 25, 2013 to give performances at the invitation of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People's Army.

The group put on its first performance at the East Pyongyang Grand Theater on the night of July 28. The Chinese artists added to the warm atmosphere of the celebration with their superb performances.

The performances were given in three forms, namely, vocal music, acrobatics and dance. During the nearly-two-hour-long performances, Chinese artists won constant applause and responded to repeated curtain calls, but the audience was still unwilling to leave.

A total of over 1,500 people including related leaders of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People's Army, officers and men of the Korean People's Army, and staff members of the Chinese Embassy in the DPRK attended the performances.

Previously, the performance group visited the Pyongyang-based DPRK-China Friendship Tower and swept the tomb.

During its stay in the DPRK, the performance group will put on shows in the party held for the delegation of veterans of the two countries before staging a special performance on July 30.
