His Excellency Mr. Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan

Dear Ilham Heydar oglu,

The beginning of 2023 is marked by an auspicious occasion – the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Kyrgyz Republic and the Republic of Azerbaijan. On the occasion of this wonderful event, I am sincerely glad to congratulate you and the fraternal people of Azerbaijan.

I am proud that the relations between our peoples, resting on a reliable foundation of centuries-old friendship, linguistic, cultural, religious and historical affinity, have acquired an interstate and diplomatic status.

I highly value the level of political ties and mutually beneficial cooperation achieved through our joint efforts in trade and economic, transport and logistical, cultural and humanitarian spheres, which reached a strategic level last year following our reciprocal visits in April and October.

I am sure that thanks to our efforts, the friendly relations between our peoples will continue to develop and strengthen and be consistent in the future.

Your Excellency, I wish you good health and continued success in your work, and peace and prosperity to the people of Azerbaijan.


Sadyr Japarov

President of the Kyrgyz Republic
