Greetings from President of Russia Vladimir Putin to Foreign Ministry employees and veterans, February 10, 2018

Saturday, 10 February 2018 10:07

Friends,

I would like to extend my most sincere greetings to you on your professional holiday, Diplomats’ Day.

There are many brilliant victories in the centuries-long history of Russian diplomacy and outstanding people who are the pride of the nation. The current Foreign Ministry staff continues to protect the country’s interests based on the good traditions of the past.

In the current complicated international situation and amid numerous problems, you are working hard to create favourable foreign policy conditions for Russia’s sustainable socioeconomic development and to protect the rights of Russian citizens and compatriots outside Russia.

The central apparatus and foreign offices of the Foreign Ministry are dealing with formidable challenges connected with the development of truly equitable and mutually beneficial cooperation with all our foreign partners. Our continued priorities are to uphold the UN’s key role in global affairs, to consolidate the international community in the fight against the terrorist threat and to strengthen the foundations of strategic stability and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

The defeat of the main terrorist forces in Syria has created conditions for a peaceful settlement in that country, which the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi has confirmed. Of course, there is still much work ahead to resolve the Syrian crisis and several other regional conflicts.

It is vitally important to continue to promote the further development of mutually beneficial integration processes within the Eurasian Economic Union and to enhance the efficiency of multilateral cooperation organisations, which have been established with proactive contribution from Russia, such as BRICS, the SCO and the CSTO.

I hope that Russian diplomats will continue to work creatively and in earnest. Your achievements are certainly fostered by the broad support given to our foreign policy in Russian society.

I wholeheartedly wish success to the Foreign Ministry employees and health, long life and courage to the veterans.
