    The floor leaders of Korea's five main political parties attended an event in Shanghai on Wednesday celebrating the 100th anniversary of the government-in-exile.

    In a press conference at Gimpo International Airport before they flew out, they vowed to look back at the past century and take this occasion to come together to create a better country for the next 100 years.

    On Thursday evening, another centennial event will take place in Seoul as well.

    Meanwhile, the U.S. Congress on Wednesday passed a bipartisan resolution recognizing the provisional government as the foundation of modern Korea for the first time.

    It says, it "recognizes the formation of the Provisional Government 100 years ago as fundamental to the vibrancy, success and prosperity of [Korea's] democracy today."
