ROMANIAN SPECIAL COMMEMORATIVE POSTAGE STAMP TO MARK THE FIGHT AGAINST
A special commemorative Romanian postage stamp issued to mark its
solidarity with the United States in President George W. Bush's "War on
terrorism" is pictured March 22, 2002. The launch of the stamp, which
features the Statue of Liberty and detail from a gate built by
Romania's most famous sculptor Constantin Brancusi, is accompanied by
1,000 special first day covers bearing the slogan "United We Stand".
Romania hopes to be admitted to NATO in November and has been at pains
to stress its support for the U.S. since the September 11 attacks.
