Your Holiness,

On my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan, I extend my sincerest congratulations to you and all your coreligionists on the anniversary of your Papal Inauguration.

The relations between Azerbaijan and the Holy See set a good example of the promotion of dialogue and tolerance among religions and cultures. I believe that our collaborative efforts will continue to contribute to the establishment of global peace and tranquility, mutual understanding and solidarity among people.

On this remarkable day, I wish you the best of health and success in your supreme spiritual mission.


Ilham Aliyev

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
