Building on the achievements and legacy of your great Father and Founding Father of modern Azerbaijan, you have taken an already confident Nation, well on its way to stability and prosperity, and with your wise, balanced and principled leadership turned it into a modern major regional power and key actor in the political, economic, security and energy areas.
I wish you great success in your presidency and impressive new strides for your country in the years ahead.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
