President of Georgia Salome Zourabichvili sent a congratulatory letter to First Vice President of Azerbaijan Mehriban Aliyeva.
According to Report, the letter reads:
"Your Excellency, dear Mehriban,
On behalf of the people of Georgia and my own, it is my pleasure to congratulate you on your birthday.
This day is an opportunity to reflect on the work you have done to bring our two countries together. During my visit to Azerbaijan, our meeting last year opened the doors to our cooperation in the years to come.
Azerbaijan and Georgia are two nations bound by ancient friendship, centuries of common struggle, and interests as neighborly countries. Our partnership is based on honesty.
It saddens me to know that you are celebrating your birthday while the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage across the world. But as we have come to learn and as I discussed with President Aliyev last April, it is through our solidarity, through international cooperation, that the global community will defeat this virus. Let me use this opportunity to reiterate my most sincere condolences to those who died from this invisible enemy in Azerbaijan.
And yet, I remain convinced that through this very same international solidarity, the world will come out of the current crisis with more unity and more robust than before. Once this pandemic subsides, I look forward to welcoming you to Georgia.
Madame First Vice-President, on your birthday, let me convey to you and your family my hopes for health, strength, and prosperity."
