Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev has congratulated France’s President Francois Hollande on the occasion of French National Day.
“On my own behalf and on behalf of the Azerbaijani people, I heartily congratulate you and your people with French National Day,” said Azerbaijan’s president in his congratulatory letter.
Azerbaijan attaches great importance to the relations with France, said the president.
He pointed out that the political, economic and cultural relations constantly develop between the two countries.
“Our mutually beneficial cooperation is the bright example of the dynamic and comprehensive development of our bilateral relations,” added President Aliyev.
“We also pin great hopes that the efforts made by France as the co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group and personally by you for putting an end to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which emerged as a result of Armenia’s territorial claims against Azerbaijan, for liberating the occupied lands and for return of over a million of our compatriots, who became refugees and IDPs, to their native lands, will soon yield results,” said Azerbaijani president.
“On this holiday, I wish you robust health, success in your activities, and peace and prosperity to the friendly French people,” added President Aliyev.
