Excellency,

It gives me immense pleasure to convey warmest felicitations on the occasion of the Republic Day of Azerbaijan.

Pakistan and Azerbaijan enjoy warm and friendly relations based on the solid foundations of a shared faith, cultural affinities and heritage. The reciprocal support that our two countries extend to each other on the issues of Jammu & Kashmir and Nagorno-Karabakh is testimony to our close strategic partnership. I look forward to continue working with Your Excellency to further deepen and strengthen the existing excellent fraternal ties in the years ahead.

I avail this opportunity to convey my best wishes for Your Excellency’s good health and happiness and for the continued peace, progress and prosperity of the brotherly people of Azerbaijan.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.

Arif Alvi

President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
