BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 27. UN Secretary-General António Guterres has sent a congratulatory letter to President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, Trend reports.
I extend to all citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan my warmest greetings on the occasion of the Independence Day.
This extraordinary moment in history reminds us of the need to work in solidarity, as one human family.
Each country must do its part to help address challenges that extend far beyond their national borders – from the COVID-19 pandemic, to deepening poverty, inequality and injustice, to the climate emergency and conflicts engulfing our world.
On this special day, I know that the United Nations can count on all citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan to rise to the challenge, accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, and build a better, fairer, more peaceful world for all people.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration", the letter said.
