Dear Mr President,

I am proud to congratulate you on your re-election as President of the Azerbaijan Republic.

I have great hopes for the strengthening of cooperation between your government and our organization in order to find a solution for internally displaced persons in Azerbaijan and to further develop procedures related to asylum and refugees in line with the highest European standards.

Taking advantage of the opportunity, I would like to express my profound thanks to you for more than 20 years of cooperation and partnership between Azerbaijan and the UN High Commission for Refugees.

Your Excellency, please accept my best regards.

With best wishes,

Antonio Gutierres,

UN High Commissioner for Refugees
