North Korea celebrates Kim-Trump Panmunjom meeting with new commemorative stamp

“Lightning meeting” described as signaling “fresh start” in U.S.-DPRK relations

North Korea has produced a stamp celebrating leader Kim Jong Un’s “lightning meeting” with U.S. President Donald Trump on June 30, featuring an image of the two standing in front of the inter-Korean border. 

The release from the state-run Korea Stamp Corporation (KSC) follows another series of three stamps issued on June 12 marking the one-year anniversary of the two leaders’ first summit in Singapore, seen by some as an overture to the U.S. amid stalled talks.
