"Dear Mr. President.
On behalf of the Government and people of the People's Republic of China, and on my own behalf, I extend my sincere congratulations and best wishes to you and the friendly people of Azerbaijan on the occasion of your national holiday - Republic Day.
China and Azerbaijan are traditionally friendly countries, and both sides strongly support each other on issues of mutual interest. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, our countries have demonstrated a high level of bilateral relations, helping and supporting each other to overcome temporary difficulties.
I attach special importance to the development of Chinese-Azerbaijani relations. I am ready to make joint efforts with you for the constant deepening of friendly and cooperative relations for the benefit of our countries and peoples.
I wish you good health and success in all your endeavors, and progress and happiness to friendly Azerbaijan and its people. "
