“Dear Mr President, on my own behalf and on behalf of the Azerbaijani people, I cordially congratulate you and all your people on the national holiday of Ukraine – Independence Day,” Caliber.Az reports with reference to the Azerbaijani president’s official website.
“Centuries-old strong friendship and mutual sympathy that unites our peoples are one of the main factors stipulating our interstate ties and cooperation. I am glad that over the past 30 years, during which our diplomatic relations were established, our mutually beneficial cooperation has dynamically and consistently developed and risen to the level of strategic partnership.
My working visit to Ukraine in January 2022, our meeting with you and the talks we held are impressive. I think that this visit is significant in terms of expanding ties between our countries.
Azerbaijan, guided by the norms and principles of international law, the UN Charter, respects the territorial integrity and sovereignty of all countries, including Ukraine. We will continue rendering assistance to the Ukrainian people in humanitarian issues.
I am confident that the traditionally friendly relations between Azerbaijan and Ukraine, and our fruitful cooperation will continue expanding through joint efforts in accordance with the interests of our peoples and countries.
Once again, I heartily congratulate you and wish you robust health, peace and prosperity to the friendly Ukrainian people,” the president said in his message.
