President of France François Hollande sent a congratulatory letter to President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev on the occasion of the Azerbaijan's national holiday – Republic Day, SIA informs.
The congratulatory letter reads:
Dear Mr President, I sincerely congratulate you on the occasion of your country’s national holiday – Republic Day and wish peace, prosperity and tranquility for the people of Azerbaijan. I extend my gratitude once again for the hospitality shown during my visit to Baku on April 25.
I’m happy with the growing bilateral cooperation that relies on mutual confidence and friendship. I wish our mutual partnership further develops and diversifies. The Azerbaijani-French University, whose basic principles we agreed on during my latest visit to your country, is extremely important in terms of offering benefit for the two countries’ youth.
I assure you that as an OSCE Minsk Group co-chair country, France will remain committed to its obligation on a peaceful resolution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which has been continuing since long ago and is a major obstacle on development in the Caucasus region.
