Wang Huning, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and a member of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee, announced the opening of the exhibition.
Wang said the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea (1950-53) was a just battle to defend peace and resist aggression.
The heroic Chinese People's Volunteers Army, together with the Korean people and army, sacrificed their lives, fought bloody battles and won the great victory in the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea, he said. 

On October 19, 1950, as requested by the DPRK, CPV forces crossed the Yalu River to aid the DPRK's fight there until a truce was signed in 1953. A total of 2.9 million CPV soldiers entered the battlefield, and 197,653 of them sacrificed their lives in the war.
