June 08th, 2010 | Xinhua Myanmar issues new stamp to mark Sino-Myanmar relations anniversary
Myanmar issued 100-Kyat new stamps Tuesday to mark the 60th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Myanmar which falls on the day.
With pictures featuring the City Hall in Myanmar’s new capital of Nay Pyi Taw and the Tian An-men Square in China’s capital of Beijing, the 500,000-piece of historically significant stamps, issued by the state-run Myanmar Posts and Telecommunications, were distributed at the post offices of Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon and Mandalay.
A special mark was stamped on the stamps sold out on the day at the three post offices.
As the first visit to Myanmar by a Chinese premier in 16 years, Wen paid a goodwill visit to the country from last Wednesday to Thursday to mark the occasion, during which he met with Chairman Than Shwe, and had talks with Prime Minister U Thein Sein.
The two countries signed 15 documents on cooperation covering areas such as a natural gas pipeline, hydropower station and grant aid.
The two prime ministers also attended celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties and took part in a handover ceremony for an international conference center, which was constructed with Chinese aid.
