His Holiness Pope Francis
On behalf of the people of Azerbaijan and on my own behalf, I extend my sincerest congratulations to you and all your coreligionists on the occasion of the Coronation Day.
We attach particular importance to relations between Azerbaijan and the Holy See. We are satisfied with our active and fruitful cooperation in preserving and developing interfaith and inter-civilizational dialogue and multicultural values.
I believe that our successful cooperation and joint steps towards ensuring the triumph of universal values will further contribute to establishing global peace and tranquility, and solidarity and mutual understanding among people.
On this remarkable day, I wish you robust health and success in your high spiritual mission, and all your coreligionists peace and prosperity.
