His Excellency Mr Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan

Dear Mr President,

It is my great pleasure to extend most cordial congratulations to you, on behalf of the citizens of the Republic of Croatia and my own, on your reelection to the office of President of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The Republic of Croatia highly values its partnership and friendly relations with the Republic of Azerbaijan, which are consistently advancing in different fields of common interest for our two peoples. I believe that in your new mandate we will continue to build even stronger relations and cooperation that is of utmost importance for both countries, especially in the economic and energy sectors, where there is great potential for improvement. I believe that it is particularly important to encourage better cooperation between Croatian and Azerbaijani firms, as well as to strengthen an interest in pursuing mutual investment opportunities.

I look forward to our forthcoming meeting on the occasion of your scheduled visit to the Republic of Croatia, which will certainly provide additional impetus for continuing to develop the friendly and meaningful cooperation between our countries and their citizens.

Until then, Mr President, I extend to you most cordial greetings and the assurances of my highest consideration.


Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic

President of the Republic of Croatia
