President Vladimir Putin sent a message of congratulations to Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on her birthday

June 15, 2002

The message read, in part:

“We highly appreciate the new level of partnership that has been attained in Russian-British relations in recent years due to our joint efforts. Today cooperation between our countries is actively developing in political, economic and other areas, and bilateral interaction is expanding in international affairs. I am convinced that close Russian-British ties will continue to strengthen, to the benefit of both countries’ peoples, in the interests of security and stability in Europe and the whole world.”
