New Releases DPRK

(News from 조선우표사 / Korea Stamp Corporation) On 15 August 2020 the Korea Stamp Corporation issued a stamp series to commemorate the “75th Anniv. of Korea’s Liberation”. The KSC tells the story of the “secret base”: “The secret base in the area of Mt Paektu served as the central leadership base, main strategic base, ensuring the leadership of the great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung over the overall Korean revolution from the second half of the 1930s to the first half of the 1940s.”

The official text continues: “In the Paektusan Base, Kim Il Sung, having clarified the truth that the masters of the Korean revolution are the Korean people and that the Korean revolution should be carried out by the Korean people themselves in a way suited to the actual conditions of their country, had organized and led the struggle for strengthening the driving force of the Korean revolution to actively greet the great event of the national liberation.”
