I would like to especially underscore that You, Your Excellency, have made an enormous contribution to the comprehensive expansion of cooperation between our friendly countries and the achievement of an unprecedented level of strategic partnership based on mutual respect and trust.
The traditionally open and trustful contacts established between our countries, the creation of effective mechanisms that streamline our interstate relations serve as a solid foundation for further strengthening mutually beneficial cooperation in all priority areas.
