From Her Excellency Ana Brnabić
The Republic of Serbia
On the occasion of Independence Day of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, I extend to you, on behalf of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and on my own behalf, sincere wishes for the further successful development and overall progress of your country and its people.
I am confident that the period ahead will see the promotion of friendly relations and cooperation existing between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, particularly taking into account that we mark an important anniversary on 29 December 2020—70 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between our two countries.
Building on the fact that Serbia and Myanmar have been fostering a sincere friendship for seven decades, I stand ready to make a personal contribution in the period ahead so that the relations between our two states develop to the benefit of our peoples. I am certain that intensification of the political dialogue and economic cooperation would enhance the quality of bilateral relations between our two countries.
May I take this opportunity to underline that the Republic of Serbia highly values the firm support that your country lends to the preservation of its territorial integrity and sovereignty, with the hope that you will continue to maintain the same position on this highly important issue in the future.
Hoping that we will soon have an opportunity to exchange views in person on all issues of mutual interest, please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
From Mahinda Rajapaksa
The Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka
It is with great pleasure that I extend to Your Excellency, my warm congratulations and best wishes on the occasion of the 73rd Anniversary of Independence Day of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
The longstanding bonds of friendship between Sri Lanka and Myanmar which is based on the principles and teachings of Theravada Buddhism is the linking force of the solid foundation and this philosophy has strengthened ties between our two countries. I believe that our two countries could work closely in overcoming common challenges faced by our two nations in both bilateral and multilateral spheres. The longstanding ties between Sri Lanka and Myanmar have grown and strengthened considerably towards a progressive friendship evolving from traditional areas of cooperation to greater vistas covering the political, economic, security and cultural spheres.
Please accept, Excellency, my best wishes for your personal well-being and for the continued progress and prosperity of the people of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
