Slovakia to commemorate Bush-Putin summit

A COMMEMORATIVE stamp and medal will be issued for Bratislava's Bush-Putin summit, which takes place at the end of February.

The Slovak Post Office will issue 100,000 of the new stamps. The stamp shows Bratislava castle with both presidents' names and the words "Slovakia Summit 2005" on a blue background. Sales of the stamp will begin February 24.

The stamp will be officially unveiled at the Incheba exhibition complex, which has been converted to a press centre for the summit.

The stamp was designed by the Enterprise Advertising
