Changes in the thematic stamp issuing plan for 2018: joint issue between Kyrgyzstan and Malta
02 November 2018

The KEP issuing plan for 2018 was supplemented by another joint stamp issue. On the occasion of 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Kyrgyz Republic and the Republic of Malta, the postal authorities of two countries decided to implement a stamp joint issue.

Despite the geographical distance, there are friendly relations, with mutual understanding and cooperation, between Kyrgyzstan and Malta. Our countries cooperate, fruitfully, within the framework of many international organizations.

The subjects of the joint stamp issue are sites included in the World Heritage List of UNESCO: the Burana Tower in Kyrgyzstan and the city of Valletta, the capital of Malta.

The Burana Tower is a minaret, built by the Kara-Khanid state in the 9th century. In 2014 this important monument of Kyrgyzstan was declared a UNESCO heritage site.

The city of Valletta is the principal cultural and administrative center of the Republic of Malta. The historical part of this city was built in 16th century by the Knights Hospitaller. The city of Valletta was officially added to the World Heritage List of UNESCO in 1980.

No doubt that this joint issue between Kyrgyzstan and Malta will contribute to strengthening the friendship and cooperation between our countries and peoples.
