Washington, June 7, AZERTAC

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has sent a congratulatory message to the leadership and the people of Azerbaijan on the occasion of the Republic Day. In his message, Tillerson says: "On behalf of the American people, I want to extend my sincere congratulations to the Azerbaijani people on the commemoration of their Republic Day."

"The United States and Azerbaijan share a strong partnership, built through years of cooperation on energy and security issues as well as dialogue on democratic principles. As the month of Ramadan begins, I also congratulate Azerbaijan on its rich history, including the establishment of the first Muslim-majority parliamentary republic 99 years ago. Then, as now, you had a vision and worked to make it a reality. The United States encourages efforts to build a more secure and prosperous nation that respects the fundamental freedoms of its people. We also remain committed to the peaceful resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict."

"The United States looks forward to even greater cooperation with Azerbaijan across all areas of our relationship in the years to come," the US Secretary of State concludes.
