New Stamps Issued
Pyongyang, April 7 (KCNA) -- The State Stamp Bureau of the DPRK brought out new stamps, including two kinds of sheetlets.

One of the sheetlets features the view of the Munsu Water Park built fashionably on the bank of the Taedong River in Pyongyang City.

The other one, issued to mark the 2014 International Year of Family Farming and the 2014 International Year of Crystallography, pictures a wheat-reaping machine, a photo of X-ray discoverer, Roentgen and a piece of ice crystal.

An individual stamp, issued to mark the 120th anniversary of the Kapo Peasant War, features Jon Pong Jun, who was a leader of the peasant uprisers, as well as uprisers in fighting the Japanese army.

The war, launched by the Korean peasants across the country against the feudal rulers and the Japanese invaders, demonstrated the people's ardent patriotism and their might of unity.
