'Dear Mr. President,
On behalf of the American people, I congratulate you and the
people of Azerbaijan on your Independence Day.
This year, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of diplomatic
relations between the United States and the Republic of Azerbaijan.
Our cooperation on energy diversification and international
security over the last three decades is bearing fruit at a critical
moment in history, and Azerbaijan is playing a key role in helping
secure and stabilize European and global markets. Azerbaijan's
support for Ukraine's sovereignty as well as your humanitarian and
energy assistance to Ukraine is sending an important message. We
also appreciate your vital contributions to the global fight
Now is also a moment of hope with an important opportunity to
build lasting peace in the South Caucasus. The United States is
ready to help intensify diplomatic engagement between Azerbaijan
and Armenia and to help Azerbaijan develop the economic,
transportation, and people-to-people connections that will enable
the entire Caucasus and trans-Caspian region to prosper. We
continue to encourage Azerbaijan to take meaningful steps toward
democratic governance and reforms that protect the human rights and
fundamental freedoms of all Azerbaijanis.
During this period of global instability, as Russia's war on
Ukraine seeks to erode the core pillars of international security,
the United States reaffirms its support for Azerbaijan's
independence and sovereignty. We look forward to enhancing our
relationship in the years and decades to come.
My best wishes to the people of Azerbaijan,' US president
