UAE-China friendship gets stamp of approval
Emirates Post Group has delivered a message of support for the UAE's flourishing friendship with China after issuing commemorative stamps celebrating the ties between the two nations.
Following on from the successful three-day state visit by China President Xi Jinping to the UAE, three stamps have been released to mark 34 years of diplomatic relations between the Middle East and Far East countries.
The stamps bear three individual designs, one with President Sheikh Khalifa, another with the portrait of the President of China and the third displaying the flags of both nations.
The stamps were issued by EPG in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation.
EPG has printed 50,000 copies of the stamps along with 1,000 First-Day cover sheets.
The commemorative stamps will be offered for sale at Dh3.
"Stamps play a big role in documenting a nation’s history,” said EPG chairman, Mohammed Al Qadi. He said the issuance of the stamps represents the culmination of the successful bilateral relations between the two countries, pays tribute to this significant visit by Mr Xi, his first foreign diplomatic trip since his re-election, and celebrates the strategic partnership between the two countries.
