ANKARA (AA) - Turkey's Post and Telegraph Organization (PTT) unveiled a joint stamp for Turkey and Qatar on Wednesday during an event to mark 45 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The ceremony was aired live to Qatar Postal Services Company on PTT Messenger, a Turkish mobile messaging application.

Qatar's Ambassador in Ankara Salem bin Mubarak Al-Shafi thanked PTT officials for taking another step to bolster relations between the two brotherly countries.

"Qatar-Turkey Joint Stamp exhibits strong diplomatic relations," Shafi said.

PTT Director-General Kenan Bozgeyik said Turkey and Qatar had stood by each other during good and bad days.

The stamp was signed by Shafi and Bozgeyik.

Images of Qatar's Barzan Towers and Al Zubara Fort and Istanbul's Rumeli Hisari, and Ankara Citadel, both medieval forts, are on the joint stamp, the PTT said on Tuesday.

The stamp will be sold for 2 liras ($0.5) and 4 liras ($1) and the first day cover will be sold for 7 liras ($1.8) at PTT offices as well as on 'www.filateli.gov.tr' website and PTT Filateli mobile application.

PTT released Turkey-Pakistan and Turkey-Azerbaijan Joint Stamps in 2017 to boost relations with these countries.

The organization generally releases stamps for cultural, historical and sports events as well as Turkish national holidays.
