Russian president Vladimir Putin has sent a congratulatory message to Prince Albert II of Monaco on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Russian Federation and the Principality…

“The establishment of diplomatic relations between our countries took Russian-Monegasque cooperation to the next level. Over the past decade, our two countries have accumulated a fairly significant track record of productive cooperation in various areas. Our political dialogue has become more intensive and substantive. Our states coordinate their efforts on important issues of the global agenda, and stand together for the establishment of a fair and democratic system of international relations based on the rule of law and the central role of the United Nations in international affairs.

“Traditionally, cultural ties have been a special part of Russian-Monegasque relations. The Year of Russia held in Monaco in 2015 played an important role in expanding them. Undoubtedly, the Days of Monaco in Moscow in October will also be an interesting and memorable event.”

Putin also said that Russia and Monaco have coordinated their stances on vital global issues and lauded their contribution to establishing a fair and democratic system of international relations. The Russian president said that Monaco had successfully hosted the Year of Russian Culture (the Year of Russia) in 2015 and expressed confidence that the Days of Monaco to be held in Moscow in October this year would also be interesting and memorable.

Putin wished the Prince of Monaco and his family good health and success. He also wished happiness and prosperity to the subjects of the Principality of Monaco.  SOURCES: Kremlin, Tass
