With highest consideration,
President of Serbia
On the occasion of Independence Day of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, I extend to you, on behalf of the people of the Republic of Serbia and on my own, cordial felicitations and best wishes for the further prosperity and well-being of your country and its people.
The decades-long friendly relations between Serbia and Myanmar, based on the principles of the Non-Aligned Movement, have been characterized by a high level of mutual respect and appreciation. I am certain that our two states will continue to promote their bilateral relations and enhance the quality of cooperation, in all areas of mutual interest.
The Republic of Serbia and its people are highly appreciative of the principled position of Myanmar not to recognize the unilaterally declared independence of the so-called Kosovo. The position of respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Serbia you have maintained thus far we see not only as a demonstration of your consistent respect for the fundamental principles of international law and the Charter of the United Nations, but also as an affirmation of the traditionally good and friendly relations and solidarity existing between Serbia and Myanmar, even in the most difficult of times.
Confident that our two states share a firm commitment to the further deepening of political dialogue and cooperation in all areas of common interest, I stand ready to personally engage, in my capacity as President, to the benefit of the peoples of our two countries.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
