President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has sent a congratulatory letter to President of China Xi Jinping.
Dear Mr. President,
It is on the occasion of the Establishment Day of the People’s Republic of China that on my behalf and on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan, I am delighted to offer my most cordial congratulations and best wishes to you and through you, your friendly people.
Today, China, with its versatile and dynamic growth, has established itself among the world’s advanced nations. Large-scale programs and infrastructure projects, implemented under your visionary leadership, have contributed to constant growth of the country’s economic prowess and international relevance, and to China’s ascent. The enormous transnational cooperation platform – “Belt and Road” – that came to fruition upon your initiative advances expansion of economic and trade relations in the Eurasian space.
For Azerbaijan, China is a reliable partner and a friendly country. Supporting one another by demonstrating mutual trust and solidarity throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has been a vivid manifestation of our solid friendly relations.
We attach special significance to the development of Azerbaijan-China relations and further deepening of our cooperation. In this sense, we are delighted that our ties that enjoy ancient and rich traditions are expanding and acquiring new substance. Involvement of the Chinese companies in the restoration and reconstruction of the East Zangazur and Karabakh economic regions, ample results achieved in transportation, logistics, infrastructure, investment, energy and other areas, and future prospects signify the high level of Azerbaijan-China partnership.
I am confident that our actions within the framework of the “Belt and Road” initiative and fruitful cooperation, based on mutual trust and support, in bilateral and multilateral format will successfully continue through our joint efforts and serve the interests of our peoples.
On this festive day, I wish you strong health, happiness and success in every endeavor, and the friendly people of China everlasting peace and prosperity.
President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
