    This will be the second time in a year that the two countries issue joint postal stamps in an effort to establish mutually beneficial cooperation in the field of shipping.

    New Delhi (Sputnik) — India and Russia will soon release a new set of joint postal stamps. India's union cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi took the decision to go ahead with the proposal after it was apprised of the recent agreement between the postal departments of the two countries.

    "Joint Stamps will be released by the Indian Department of Posts and Russia Post (Joint-Stock Company "MARKA" of the Russian Federation) to establish postal cooperation and strive towards mutually beneficial operational excellence in the field stamp issuance," an Indian government press release stated.

    Bilateral relations between India and Russia are marked by a broad understanding of issues of mutual interest. India and Russia enjoy enhanced levels of cooperation in almost all areas of the bilateral relationship, the release added.

    Last year, India and Russia had jointly issued a stamp to commemorate 70 years of diplomatic relations. The stamps depicted Indian and Russian folk dances.
