Vladimir Putin congratulated Austrian President Thomas Klestil and Federal Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel on the Republic's national holiday — adoption of Law on the permanent neutrality of Austria

October 27, 2000

The congratulatory message read, in part:

“Russia has always viewed the neutrality policy as an integral part of the European strategic stability and has traditionally supported it. In today’s world, permanent neutrality is a vivid example of versatility in shaping a multi-polar world, a significant contribution to ensuring security on a non-block basis.”
