Greetings to President of the Republic of Turkiye Recep Tayyip Erdogan

October 29, 2023

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to President of Turkiye Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the centenary of the Turkish Republic.

The message reads, in part:

“Over the past century, your country has overcome numerous challenges, achieving generally recognised success in the economy, social sphere and other sectors. Turkiye is a highly respected country on the global stage, and rightfully so.

Russian-Turkish relations are developing in the spirit of friendship and neighbourliness, which was fully confirmed at our recent meeting in Sochi. The two countries efficiently cooperate in a wide range of areas, with major joint projects implemented on a regular basis. Moscow and Ankara successfully coordinate their efforts to resolve pressing issues on the regional and global agendas.

I am confident that we will continue to consistently expand the scope of bilateral ties for the benefit of our friendly nations, aiming to build a more just and democratic world order.”
