BEIJING - A cross-Straits forum to commemorate the 150th birthday of Sun Yat-sen was held in Beijing Thursday.

The forum, jointly sponsored by the Central Committee of the Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang and the Alumni Association of the Huangpu Military Academy, was attended by 180 people including Huangpu alumni and their relatives from all over the world.

Participants at the forum called on Huangpu alumni and their families to carry forward the spirit of Sun and jointly contribute to the peaceful development of cross-Straits ties and the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

The Huangpu (Whampoa) Military Academy opened in south China's Guangzhou in 1924. The first lessons were delivered on June 16 of that year by Dr. Sun, founder of the Kuomintang Party, and a revered revolutionary leader who played a pivotal role in overthrowing imperial rule in China.
