From Gjorge Ivanov, President of the Republic of Macedonia

His Excellency Mr Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan

Distinguished Mr President,

With great honor I congratulate you, on behalf of the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia and on my personal behalf, on the National Day of the Republic of Azerbaijan, sincerely wishing you prosperity of your country and well-being of the Azerbaijani people.

It is with pleasure that I remember our meetings, including the last one in Baku in March this year, and the open and friendly talks we have had on those occasions. Hoping that in the near future I will have the opportunity to return my hospitality and welcome you to the Republic of Macedonia, I would like, even in this solemn occasion, to emphasize the conviction that the relations between the two friendly countries will be successfully developed further in the coming period.

Wishing you good health and personal happiness, please Your Excellency, accept the assurances of my highest consideration.

Sincerely,

Gjorge Ivanov

President of the Republic of Macedonia
