Description
His Excellency Mobutu Sese Seko, President of the Republic of Zaire and concurrently President of Mouvement Porulaire de la Rovolution, and Mrs. Mobutu Sese Seko make an official visit to our country from June 7-10, 1982 at the invitation of President Chun Doo Hwan.

Located in central Africa, the Republic of Zaire, which attained independence in 1960, is the second biggest country in Africa with a population of 29 million and an area of 2,344,855sq. km. The richness of Zaire in natural resources (such minerals as diamond, cobalt, copper, tin, etc., along with large farm land, and rich forests) provides the country with the greatest potentiality of development in Africa. French is spoken as the common language.

The Republic of Zaire, a non-aligned neutral country, has great influence on the Third World member countries in the UN as well as on the Organization of African Unity and other African counties. The diplomatic relations between Zaire and Korea were established in 1963, and the two countries have since been rapidly intensifyig mutual cooperation in such fields as trade and cultural and personnel exchanges. Zaire has also been actively supporting our position in UN and other international conferences. It is expected that President Mobutu's visit to our country will not only indensify the existing relations, but also serve to open a new chapter of cooperation between the two countries.

The Ministry of Communications issues this commemorative postage stamp as a token of the hearty welcome our nation extends to President and Mrs. Mobutu Sese Seko of the Republic of Zaire.
