Pyongyang, August 30 (KCNA) -- A commemorative stamp (a souvenir sheet) was released on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the DPRK and Cuba.

The stamp carries a photo of President Kim Il Sung and Fidel Castro Ruz.

Seen on it are letters reading "Commemorating the 50th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations between the DPRK and the Republic of Cuba" and "Juche 49 (1960)-Juche 99 (2010)" and national flags of the two countries.
