Historical and Cultural Ties between Kyrgyzstan and China :Li Bai
This miniature sheet comprises two postage stamps. China and Kyrgyzstan are neighboring countries, with friendly relations. Mutual understanding and support have developed between them. China was one of the first countries to recognize the independence of Kyrgyzstan. One of the symbols of historical and cultural ties between Kyrgyzstan and China is the fact that the great Chinese poet of the Tang Dynasty, Li Bai (701-762), was born in Suyab, near the modern city of Tokmak, in the north of Kyrgyzstan.
The literary heritage of Li Bai comprises about 1,100 works, of which about 900 are poems.

Kyrgyzstan-Belarus Joint issue
This KEP issue includes two miniatures: one represents the Kyrgyz horse (a “Novokyrgyz” breed), and the second, a “Trakehner” horse, common in Belarus. The Kyrgyz horse is of ancient origin, and its history is closely connected with the history of the Kyrgyz people. The Kyrgyz horse has always been characterized by exceptional endurance, unpretentiousness and adaptability to the conditions of the mountainous terrain.
The Trakehner breed was created primarily for cavalry, which required horses with speed and power. Over time, the Trakehner breed lost its military significance, but it was used with great success in agriculture and equestrian sport.
