Communication Ministry Uses State of Palestine on New Stamps for use abroad

Communication Ministry Uses ‘State of Palestine’ on New Stamps
http://english.wafa.ps/index.php?action=detail&id=21471

RAMALLAH, January 8, 2013 (WAFA) – Minister of Communication Safa
Nassereddin said Tuesday that the first stamp to carry the name “State of
Palestine” will be issued for the benefit of Palestinian diplomatic offices
abroad.

She said that because issuing new stamps requires Israeli approval to print
them and bring them into the country, it was decided that the new stamps
will be printed in Bahrain, which has contributed to the cost of printing
them, and will be used abroad.

The ministry said cost of printing new stamps is relatively high and because
there are no special stamp printing machines in Palestine, the stamps have
to be printed abroad.

The stamps will be used on certain forms at Palestinian diplomatic offices
around the world.

President Mahmoud Abbas issued a decree on Sunday giving instructions to the
government to start using the term “State of Palestine” instead of the term
“Palestinian National Authority” on all official documents including
passports, identity cards, population registration, driving licenses, stamps
and other documents.
