Dear Mr. President,

Dear brother!

On my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to you and all the people of your country on the occasion of the national holiday of Turkey – Republic Day.

Committed to its statehood traditions and principles, brotherly Turkey is confidently moving forward on the path of independence, democracy and economic growth. Turkey’s active role and standing in ongoing processes in the world enables the country to host meetings and summits of the most influential international organizations. Turkey`s using its exceptional right as a host country to invite Azerbaijan to these forums is an example of true brotherhood.

I am confident that Azerbaijani-Turkish friendship and brotherhood, strategic partnership and alliance will continue developing and strengthening in accordance with the will of our peoples, who are bound together by deep historical roots and common national and spiritual values.

On this remarkable day, I once again congratulate you, wish you robust health, happiness, success in your activities, and the brotherly people of Turkey everlasting peace and prosperity.



Ilham Aliyev

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
