08.11.2005 - The Stamps World - The first Iranian Monthly Magazine for Philately
The situation of world politics might still be a critical one. Nevertheless, in Iran the first traces of a new philatelic development

The situation of world politics might still be a critical one. Nevertheless, according to Hermann Walter Sieger, in Iran the first traces of a new philatelic development can be found. Since July 2005 "The Stamps World" (www.irpost.com/philairan) have been published in Teheran and holds the status of the first monthly magazine for philately in this country. It is fully coloured and written in Persian and English.

Specialised journalists and editors have probably realised that for some time by now the Iranian postal administration has put a lot of effort into informing other specialised magazines about the latest philatelic developments. This is an unprecedented trend, which the AIJP highly promotes, as it promises to bring people and cultures closer together. Wolfgang Maaßen, the president of the AIJP, has already established contacts to our colleagues in Teheran. So you can expect fascinating developments in the future.
