Description
His Excellency President Nguyen Van Thieu will arrive here on May 27 to pay an official state visit to Korea at the invitation of President Park Chung Hee of Korea. His Excellency`s visit to this country is expected to greatly contribute to further cementing the friendly ties of the two countries as well as to strengthening the mutual effort in bringing about peace and freedom for Vietnam.

The Republic of Vietnam, a constitutional democratic government, was formed in October, 1955 after being freed from the French colonial rule. It covers an area of 171,655 square kilo-meters with population of 16,973,000. Vietnam has been a center of the southern buddhism culture and is chiefly an agricultural country yielding two crops a year, situated in subtropical zone. Its Delta area is famous as a large agricultural production area.

Following the division of the country by the 17th pararell into the south and north as a result of the Geneva Agreement of 1954, the Viet Congassisted by North Vietnam has persisted in intensifying terrorist action placing the country in the danger of communist take-over, whereupon the free allies did not simply sit idle and look.

The Korean troops participated in the fighting in 1966 as a crusaer for peace to help defend the freedom of the Vietnamese and have been winning world-wide reputation as brave soldiers of justice. Beside this, they have also left amazing achievements in their rehabilitation and pacification works.

The Ministry of Communications issues a stamp in honor of President Nguyen Van Thieu`s visit to Korea, hoping that his visit contribute to furthering our mutual cooperations and efforts in securing peace and freedom in Vietnam.
