Dear Mr. Prime Minister:
On behalf of the United States, I congratulate you on your assuming the duties of Prime Minister of Azerbaijan. Your appointment comes at a time of increasingly strong bilateral relations between the United States and Azerbaijan. We look forward to working with you, your government, and the Parliament of Azerbaijan to strengthen your country’s democratic institutions as you prepare for the upcoming elections. We also continue to work with you to advance cooperation in kea areas that will bring our countries even closer together, including counterterrorism and regional stability, energy, and continue political and economic reform.
We send our thoughts and prayers to your father and your family. Your father has played a key role in building the U.S.-Azerbaijan relationship.
George W. Bush
