Pyongyang, October 1 (KCNA) -- The Korea Stamp Corporation issued commemorative stamps (two sheets, two sheetlets and one individual stamp) on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea. Written on the upper part of the stamps are letters "Commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the WPK" and "Juche 34 (1945)-Juche 94 (2005)." Seen in the middle parts of the sheets are round-shaped stamps carrying portraits of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il and in the lower parts are letters "Foundation of the WPK" and "60th Anniversary" and the emblem of the WPK. A sheetlet contains stamps depicting Kim Il Sung who formed the Down-with-Imperialism Union (DIU) and the first Juche-type party organization, thus providing historical roots of the WPK and strengthening and developing it. The other sheetlet carries stamps portraying Kim Il Sung delivering the report on the work of the Central Committee of the WPK at its 6th Congress, Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il watching the training of soldiers of the Korean People's Army (KPA), Kim Jong Il waving to the enthusiastically cheering people and Supreme Commander of the KPA Kim Jong Il who has trained the KPA as invincible revolutionary armed forces. Depicted on those sheetlets are the Party Founding Museum, the Tower of the Juche Idea, the Monument to Party Founding and so on.

The individual stamp portrays the Monument to Party Founding against the background of the letters "DIU" and Lake Chon on Mt. Paektu.
