Serbia has released a dedicated stamp to commemorate the 75 years of India’s independence.
The Post of Serbia released the stamp as a celebration of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ at a special event organised by PTT Museum in Belgrade. The Acting Director of the Post of Serbia, Zoran Djordjevic handed over the stamp to Ambassador Sanjeev Kohli in presence of Serbian First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic.
The First DYPM in his statement noted that 75 years had passed since the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and the then Yugoslavia, and the friendship between the two countries continues to grow stronger.
Ambassador Sanjeev Kohli said that the two countries share a special relationship and rejoice at each other’s success and stand by each other in difficult times. Djordjevic remarked that the great friendship with India had been immaculate and it was only logical for the Post of Serbia to issue the dedicated stamp as it wanted to honour a great friend and ally.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia, in a tweet, also announced publishing a special stamp to honour the 75th anniversary of India’s independence. Serbia’s Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic stressed that the two nations will mark 75 years of diplomatic relations in 2023.
