The congratulation states, in particular:
“I sincerely congratulate you and the staff of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on their professional holiday – the Diplomat’s Day.
This day symbolises the high professionalism of the Russian diplomacy to solve the tasks of advancing Russian positions on the international arena. Thanks to the professionalism of its diplomats, the Russian Federation dignifiedly participates in the solution of the most important international questions, such as the preservation of balance in the international system and the fight with extremism and terrorism. The Foreign Ministry of Russia has high authority in the world.
The leadership of Abkhazia highly values the role of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation in the development and strengthening of allied relations between our states. Your visit to Sukhum in April last year and the grand opening of the Embassy of Russia in Abkhazia gave a new impetus to bilateral cooperation.
I wish you, dear Sergey Viktorovich, and all staff members and veterans of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs good health, prosperity and successes in your noble work”
