Lukashenko, Putin exchanged congratulations on 30th anniversary of Belarus-Russia diplomatic relations’ establishment
The Belarusian President’s message to the Russian leader reads,
Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich!
Please accept my sincere congratulations on the occasion of the significant date: 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation.
Our countries have gone a long path together over this time – laying a solid foundation for comprehensive strategic partnership and deep integration.
For the two nations, the focus on close fruitful co-operation is a natural process predetermined by their geographical proximity, inseparable cultural and spiritual ties created over the centuries, and a common heroic past.
I am convinced that strengthening constructive co-operation between Minsk and Moscow within the framework of the Union State and as part of other interstate associations creates the necessary conditions for successfully overcoming global challenges and threats.
I wish you, dear Vladimir Vladimirovich, strong health, inexhaustible cheerfulness and good luck, and I wish residents of Russia peaceful sky, prosperity and confidence in the future.
The congratulatory message of Russia’s Head of State to the President of Belarus reads:
Dear Aleksandr Grigoryevich!
Please accept my warmest congratulations on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus.
By relying on good traditions of brotherly friendship – that have long connected our peoples, we have managed to do a lot over the past decades to develop interstate ties in the spirit of alliance and good neighbourliness. Significant experience of effective bilateral co-operation has been accumulated in a range of areas.
These days, we continue to systematically increase integration interaction within our Union State, and are working to enhance our defence capability jointly with our CSTO partners. Co-ordination of efforts of Moscow and Minsk in the Eurasian Economic Union and the Commonwealth of Independent States produces a good return.
I am convinced that further strengthening of the entire complex of Russian-Belarusian relations fully meets interests of our countries’ citizens, goes in line with ensuring security and stability in the Eurasian space.
I sincerely wish you, dear Aleksandr Grigoryevich, good health and success, and I wish happiness and prosperity to the Belarusian people.
