Acting Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Eduard Shevardnadze on his election to a second term as president of Georgia

April 11, 2000

The congratulatory message said:

“I believe that Georgia will make further headway in democratising its society, enhancing its statehood and facilitating an economic recovery under your guidance. The successful accomplishment of these objectives would promote both the aspirations of the Georgian people and the interests of Russia, which is invariably committed to friendship with Georgia.

“I am convinced that through our concerted efforts we will manage to provide a new impulse to good-neighbourly bilateral relations.”
