Please accept my cordial congratulations on your re-election as President of the Republic of Finland.
At the elections, which have taken place, the citizens of Finland have supported your candidature, for they pin their hopes on you for the socio-economic development of the country and the building of peace and public accord.
I believe that in your new tenure of presidential service the relations between our nations, with their long history, will be invariably good-neighbourly and fruitful.
