President of the Republic of Abkhazia




On January 20, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba congratulated the state adviser of the Republic of Tatarstan Mintimer Shaimiev on his anniversary.

Dear Mintimer Sharipovich!

I sincerely congratulate you on your 80th anniversary! Please accept my most sincere and kind wishes!

It is largely thanks to your efforts that Tatarstan today is one of the most developed republics in the Russian Federation. Your personal contribution to the rebirth of Tatarstan’s statehood is worthy of special mention.

For many years, you were at the head of the Republic and you created a solid foundation on which the Republic continues to develop today.

You are much respected in our state.

Your personal contribution to the development of relations between Abkhazia and Tatarstan is significant. We know that you were on good terms with the First President of Abkhazia Vladislav Ardzinba and that you worked together in the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union.

The people of Abkhazia highly value the support that Tatarstan gave us in the difficult period for our state in 1992-1993 and also in the difficult post-war years of blockade in our republic.

The Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation between the Republic of Abkhazia and Tatarstan in 1994 was one of the first international agreements signed by Abkhazia which was still unrecognised then.

It is wonderful that today friendly relations between our republics continue to develop and grow stronger in the new condition of the recognition of Abkhazia by the Russian Federation.

Allow me to wish you, dear Mintimer Sharipovich, strong health, Abkhazian longevity, peace, prosperity and future successes in your activity for the people of the Republic of Tatarstan.
