United States of America.
Dear Mr. Secretary,
I am pleased to send my warmest congratulations to you and to the Government and people of the United States on your Independence Day.
It has been a great pleasure working with you in the past year to strengthen the valuable cooperation between our countries in our important bilateral and regional work together. I am also very pleased that our people are working closely together in many vital areas and are continuing to form strong and personal links in the spirit of friendship and goodwill that our people have long shared.
This year also marks 30 years since the establishment of our modern diplomatic relations and I look forward to working with you to continue strengthening these much-valued ties.
With my kindest regards and best wishes to you and to your family and to the American people for a very happy fourth of July celebration.
