Esteemed Mr Prime Minister,

Kindly accept my heartfelt congratulations on your jubilee.

In India and abroad you have earned well-deserved respect as an outstanding statesman and eminent economist. It is largely thanks to your efforts as the architect of Indian reforms that the country’s economy is dynamically developing and its technological and industrial potential is on the rise. India strengthens its position in the world arena, plays an important role in the UN, BRICS, G20, other global and regional structures.

I would like to make a special note of your personal contribution to broadening mutually beneficial Russian-Indian relations which have reached the level of privileged strategic partnership. I warmly recall our meetings which have always taken place in a friendly and constructive atmosphere. I am convinced that our forthcoming talks in New Delhi will be conducive to further deepening of the entire gamut of bilateral ties for the benefit of both countries, in the interests of ensuring stability and security in Asia.

I heartily wish you good health, well-being and further success in your responsible work.

Respectfully yours,


Vladimir Putin

President of the Russian Federation
