Your Holiness,

We were deeply saddened by the news of the death of Archbishop of Baku and Azerbaijan Eparchy Alexander.

Archbishop Alexander’s tireless activities, bright preaching talent, and his great personal contribution to the strengthening of Azerbaijan-Russia friendship, interfaith solidarity and tolerance have rightly earned him deep respect among the representatives of various nations and religions. His memory will always live in our hearts.

Your Holiness, please accept, in this sorrowful time, our deepest condolences over this heavy loss.

Sincerely,

Ilham Aliyev and Mehriban Aliyeva
