Hanoi (People's Daily) - A memorial to honor Chinese martyrs who served in the Vietnam War was held in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi on Wednesday.

Ten Chinese soldiers who helped Vietnam battle the U.S. during the Vietnam war were buried in Xuan Mai Martyrs Cemetery.

The Chinese embassy in Vietnam, Sino-Vietnam friendship association and Chinese firms in Vietnam laid wreaths at the monument.

Over 1,400 Chinese martyrs are buried in Vietnam.

Half a century ago, at the request of Vietnam and its people, the Chinese government sent 320,000 Chinese soldiers to Vietnam, who fought with the Vietnam people against an invasion.
