To His Holiness Pope Francis

Your Holiness,

On my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan, I heartily congratulate you and all your fellow believers on the Day of the coronation.

I do hope that the development of relations between Azerbaijan and the Vatican will continue to serve the triumph of human values, mutual understanding, respect and solidarity between people.

I wish you good health and every success in your work in the name of sacred ideas, and your co-religionists permanent welfare and prosperity.


Ilham Aliyev
President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
