Pyongyang, November 17 (KCNA) -- The Korea Stamp Corporation has recently issued a new stamp to disclose the fact that the Japanese imperialists fabricated "Ulsa Five-Point Treaty" 100 years ago. The "Ulsa Five-Point Treaty" was concocted by the Japanese imperialists in 1905 to realize their colonial domination over Korea. The stamp, beneath the words "100th year since the fabrication of 'Ulsa Five-Point Treaty' by Japanese Imperialists (1905-2005)", reflects the fabricated treaty minus the signature of the then King Kojong and the print of the royal seal. By making the mark "X" on the document, the stamp declares it illegal and null.

The face-value of the stamp is 12 won.
