President of the Republic of Turkey

Your Excellency,

Dear Mr. President:

Please accept my cordial greetings with your re-election as President of Turkey.

Citizens of the Republic have again entrusted you with the leadership of the country thus showing a wide popular support of your domestic and foreign policy. I am confident that your rich experience of service to the state, purposefulness and active patriotism will help you to successfully solve the tasks facing the country.

I highly appreciate your firm decision to continue the uncompromising struggle against international terrorism which is challenging humanity and jeopardizing the bases of statehood, social order and peaceful life.

I express my hope that your work as President will contribute to the development of good relations between Turkey and Russia.

I wish you strength and the blessed success in your responsible ministry and peace and well-being to the people of Turkey.

With respect,
