His Excellency Mr Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
On behalf of the Swiss Federal Council and the people of Switzerland, I extend to you and the people of the Republic of Azerbaijan my sincere congratulations and my very best wishes for your Republic Day. On this occasion, I would like to wish you and the residents of your country happiness, prosperity and every success for the future.
The good, trusting relations between our countries enable us to address major global challenges together, especially in the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic, where international cooperation and solidarity are more important than ever.
I remember with pleasure our exchange in Davos on 22 January this year, which gave us the opportunity to renew the strong ties of friendship between our countries.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
President of the Swiss Confederation
