Description
Presdent and Mrs. Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara of Gambia make a state visit to our country for six days from Sepember 12 to 17, 1984, at the invitation of President Chun Doo Hwan.

Situated in West Africa, bordering Senegal, Gambia has an area of 11.295sq. km., and a population of 690,000, about 90 percent of which is Moslem. With the climate of high temperature and humidity, the country mainly produces peanuts, coconuts and cotton. Its official language is English.

Although professing itself to be pursuing the non-aligned, neutral diplomatic policy, the Gambea is in fact a pro-Western country, maintaining friendly relations with the neighboring countries of Africa. The diplomatic relations between Gambia and Korea were established in 1965, and the relations between the two countries have since been improving in economic and technological fields.

President Sir Dawda Kairaa Jawara will have summit talks with President Chun and exchange views on matters of common concern.

The Ministry of Communications issue this commemorative stamp as a sign of the hearty welcome our nation extends to President and Mrs. Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara.
