Our interest is so high that we have specifically booked a large plane. Before this visit I began to collect information about your country. I have studied the development road your country has covered specifically in the last 20 years. It is very impressive in the true sense of the word.

We will soon celebrate the 20thanniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between our two countries.
I believe that we have already established a very good relationship in all matters and in all areas. Our relations are at a very high level. This in itself is a good basis for our closer economic cooperation in the future.
