South Korean Prime Minister Jung Hong-won Visits Chongqing

On April 12th, the PM of South Korea Jung Hong-won paid a visit to the former sites of South Korea's temporary government, the Liberation Army's command, Liangjiang New District etc in Chongqing together with his delegation and held a ceremony for the 95th anniversary of the establishment of South Korea's temporary government. During the visit, Jung Hong-won said that Chongqing has a unique meaning to South Korea due to numerous assistances it got during that period of time and the South Korean government and its people will always bear it in mind. At the same time, he wishes Chongqing to have a better future.
South Korea's ambassador to China Quan Shining and the vice-mayor of Chongqing Liu Qiang accompanied him during the visit.
During the anti-Japanese war, South Korea's temporary government moved to Chongqing. It stationed in the then Qijiang County for one and a half years and then moved to the present place of No. 38, Lotus Pound in Yuzhong District in 1940. At that moment, it established its own army-the Liberation Army with its former site located at the present-day the Liberation Stele on Zourong Road. In 1945, when Japan was defeated and surrendered and the World War II ended, South Korea's temporary government had completed its mission and relevant personnel started to return to their own country in batches. For South Korea's temporary government, the past six years was an important period of time in which it actively carried out the movement of independence with the Liberation Army doing publicity work against the enemy, collecting intelligence, interrogating Japanese captives or even participating the war in all the war zones. It had contributed a lot to China's anti-Japanese war.
At the former site of South Korea's temporary government, Jung Hong-won placed a bouquet at the statue of the late president of South Korea's temporary government Kim Gu and took a group photo in front of the old photo of Liberation Army's members. After that, he went to the former Liberation Army's command and attentively listened to the introduction of the Liberation Army's work when they were in Chongqing.
At the ceremony for the 95th anniversary of the establishment of South Korea's temporary government, Jung Hong-won said South Korea's temporary government moved to Chongqing to avoid the chase and attack by Japanese army. People in China and in South Korea must ever never forget the memory of how they resisted and fought back against Japanese army hand in hand and made great efforts to recover their lost land. The South Korean government extends thanks to the authority of Chongqing for managing and preserving the historical site of South Korea's movement of independence.
Jung Hong-won paid attention to know the development of Liangjiang New District in  Liangjiang New District and the Chongqing – Xinjiang - Europe logistics channel for international railway transportation and the south-oriented Chongqing – ASEAN logistics channel for international logistics. After the visit, he wrote an inscription to wish Liangjiang New District to develop and to grow stronger as early as possible so as to make greater contributions to China's economic development.
