An exhibition of stamps was recently inaugurated at the Philatelic Association of Cyprus to commemorate the 155th anniversary of the birth of Cuban National Hero Jose Marti.

According to Granma news daily, the exhibition includes stamps from the personal collections of Cuban Roberto Delgado and Cypriot expert Andreas Eliades, which are linked to the life and work of Jose Marti and also to the history and nature of the Caribbean island.

During the inauguration ceremony, the Cuban Ambassador in Cyprus, Fidel Vascos Gonzalez, expressed his gratitude for the opening of the exhibition and spoke of several aspects of Marti’s life. 

Nicos Rangos, President of the Philatelic Association of Cyprus, presented several transparencies showing the literary and patriotic work of Jose Marti and the monuments that have been erected in his honor in several parts of the world.
