Your Holiness,

On behalf of myself and the people of Azerbaijan, I am pleased to convey my most sincere congratulations and best wishes to you and your fellow believers on the occasion of your Coronation Day.

I believe that the successfully continuing Azerbaijan-Vatican cooperation for the triumph of universal values, multiculturalism and tolerance will further serve peace and tranquility, mutual understanding and solidarity among people on earth.

I remember with pleasure my visit to the Vatican, our meeting and exchange of views with you.

On such a remarkable day, I wish you good health, success in your holy mission, and your fellow believers happiness and well-being.
