Message from Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, Chairman of the State Administration Council and Prime Minister of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar to Mr Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation on the occasion of the 75th Diamond Jubilee of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and the Russian Federation

On the auspicious occasion of the 75th Diamond Jubilee of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and the Russian Federation which falls on 18 February 2023, the people of Myanmar join me in extending our warmest felicitations and congratulations to Your Excellency and, through you, to the people of the Russian Federation.
It is with much satisfaction to observe that since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1948, our two countries have been enjoying a unique time-tested friendship and partnership defined by mutual respect and understanding. Notwithstanding the changing international landscape, the bilateral relations and cooperation between Myanmar and the Russian Federation remain warm and close. There are also substantive people-to-people ties between our two countries with many Myanmar scholars having pursued and many more still pursuing their studies in Russia. Myanmar always considers Russia an important and reliable partner. We highly value and appreciate Russia’s consistent support for Myanmar, both bilaterally and multilaterally, particularly during its difficult times.
I am pleased that the exchange of high-level visits and the increasing engagement and cooperation in various fields at different levels have yielded tangible results for our two countries and peoples. I fondly recall my visit to the Russian Federation in September 2022 where we both agreed to further enhance our bilateral relations and multifaceted cooperation in the mutual interests of our two peoples. I am convinced that the bonds of friendship and cooperation in trade, investment, tourism and cultural sectors will be elevated to new heights with the inauguration of the Myanmar Consulates-General in St. Petersburg and Novosibirsk in the near future.
The year 2023 is an opportune time not only to commemorate the historic milestone in our bilateral ties but also to reflect and invigorate our bilateral relations and mutually beneficial cooperation. A series of commemorative events and activities planned to be held on both sides throughout the year will also pave the way for the further advancement of our bilateral relationship. At this important juncture, I wish to reaffirm the commitment of the Government of Myanmar to work more closely with the Government of the Russian Federation to further strengthen our bilateral relations and expand cooperation in all spheres of common interest that will contribute to the stability and prosperity of the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
Availing myself of this auspicious occasion, I wish Your Excellency good health, happiness and all success in your future endeavours, as well as continued progress and prosperity of the Russian Federation and its people.
Please accept, Excellency, the renewed assurances of my highest consideration.
