Dear Mr President,

I sincerely congratulate you on your re-election as President of the Azerbaijan Republic. You are showing great attention to and care for the development of sports. As a result, Azerbaijan has turned into the world’s most important sports power. I wish you success in your preparations for the first European Games.

Azerbaijan is one of the youngest members of the international orienteering family. I am very pleased with the successes of the newly-created federation in this sport in your country. The federation is already holding world-class events and is participating in international tournaments. I highly appreciate this.

With my deepest regards and reverence,

Brian Porteous,

President of the International Orienteering Federation
