April 17, 2002

The following is the text of External Affairs Minister Shri Jaswant Singh's letter to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus, H.E. Mr. Mikhail Khvostov, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and Belarus:

Your Excellency,

It gives me great pleasure to convey warm greetings and felicitation to you on the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and the Republic of Belarus. Our two countries have traditionally shared warm, close and friendly ties. It is satisfying that the first decade of our relationship has been marked with cooperation in several areas of mutual interest.

The State visit to India by President of Belarus, H.E. Mr. Alexander Lukashenko, in September 1997 was an important milestone in our bilateral relations. The momentum thus generated by this visit has been sustained through exchange of several Ministerial and official level visits. We hope that such interaction would be further reinforced in the coming years, to the benefit of our two countries.

Over these years, there has also been close interaction between our two Foreign Ministries. We have signed several agreements in important areas. This has led to further progress in our bilateral cooperation in several areas including trade and economy, science and technology, and culture. I am confident that through joint endeavour, our bilateral ties will continue to expand and intensify in future to mutual benefit.

Please accept, Excellency, my best wishes for your good health and success, and for the progress and prosperity of the friendly people of the Republic of Belarus.

With assurances of my highest consideration,

(Jaswant Singh)
H.E. Mr. Mikhail Khvostov,
Minister of Foreign Affairs of the
Republic of Belarus,
Minsk.
