“On behalf of the people and the government of the Republic of Abkhazia, allow me to send you, your colleagues and all people of the Republic of Nauru our greetings and sincere congratulations on the occasion of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Independence Day.
January 31, 1968, is an important date in the contemporary history of Nauru. This day symbolises the beginning of a new era in the formation of the state and the aspiration of the people of Nauru to build an independent state. The people of Abkhazia are familiar with obstacles on the way to independence and they sincerely share in your joy on this wonderful occasion.
Today the Republic of Nauru makes a valuable contribution to the solution of important issues on the regional and international agenda. In a relatively short period of time, strong ties of friendship were formed between our states, which are based on deep mutual respect and trust. It is with satisfaction that I comment on the positive dynamics of our bilateral cooperation and the high level of interaction.
Your Excellency, I remember with warm feelings your visit to the Republic of Abkhazia in November 2017. I highly value your great personal contribution to the strengthening of the strategic alliance between our states. I would like to confirm our readiness to continue our constructive dialogue and the efficient common work of increasing bilateral cooperation.
On this occasion, allow me to assure you, Your Excellency, of my great respect for you and to wish the people of Nauru peace and prosperity!”
