2008 is a meaningful year that marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Korea and Thailand. In 1950, Thailand participated in the Korean War as a member of the UN contingent. Over more than half a century, the two countries have cemented their goodwill and friendship through active exchanges in politics, economics, social matters, culture, etc. The word Thailand stands for “the Land of Freedom.” On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relationship between Korea and Thailand, in the hope that our relations with these beautiful Thai people will go to greater heights, Korea Post issues a set of joint stamps with Thailand Post that features both Changdeokgung Palace in Korea and the Grand Palace in Thailand.
