TAIPEI, -- St. Kitts and Nevis is planning a series of commemorative stamps to mark the 30th anniversary of diplomatic ties with the Republic of China (Taiwan), according to Taiwan's diplomatic personnel responsible for ties with the Caribbean country.
The commemorative stamps, to be issued by the St. Kitts and Nevis General Post Office, will be available by the end of this year or early next year, said Florencia Hsie, deputy director-general of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Department of Latin American and Caribbean Affairs, at a regular news briefing.
Taiwan has provided pictures of Yushan, the country's highest peak; the outlying Penghu islands; and the Taipei 101 skyscraper for the stamps, Hsie added.
Also featured will be scenes from St. Kitts and Nevis, including Mount Liamuiga, the highest point on the island of St. Kitts, the ministry said.
