His Excellency Mr Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation

Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich,

I sincerely congratulate you and the whole people of Russia on the successful organization of the 21st FIFA World Cup.

The World Cup has become a truly memorable sporting event for all admirers of this most popular sport as well as for millions of fans.

Having demonstrated the great power of sport that brings nations closer together, strengthens friendship and cooperation, the Russia-hosted World Cup will rightfully go down in the history of the championships as an example of excellent organization, preparation and holding of such tournaments.

Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich, I wish you robust health, happiness and new successes, and all the Russians peace and prosperity.



Ilham Aliyev
