A letter exchange occurred between Azerbaijani and Israeli Presidents on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between the two countries, APA reports.

The letter reads: "It is on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the State of Israel that, on my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan, I cordially congratulate you and your friendly people and offer my warmest and sincerest wishes.

The Azerbaijan-Israel ties are based on traditions of close friendship and mutual respect that have historically existed between our peoples. I note with pleasure that in the past 30 years, our cooperation has developed exponentially in the political, economic, military-technical, healthcare, cultural and other domains of mutual interest, and our friendly ties have grown stronger.

The Jewish community that has lived in Azerbaijan for centuries in an atmosphere of amicability, peace and harmony and our compatriots of Jewish origin residing in Israel and elsewhere around the world contribute to the solidification of our interstate relations.

Today, there are ample opportunities for developing cooperation between our countries and expanding its scope. I believe that through joint efforts, we can capitalize on existing opportunities and achieve a further deepening of our traditionally friendly relations and productive cooperation for the sake of the prosperity of our peoples that share profound affinity towards each other.

I seize this opportunity to wish robust health, happiness and success to you and everlasting peace and prosperity to the friendly people of Israel."

The Letter from Israeli President reads: "On behalf of the State and the people of Israel, let me congratulate you, on this festive day in which we mark 30 years of diplomatic relations between our countries.

This anniversary is an opportunity to commend the good bilateral relations between the State of Israel and the Republic of Azerbaijan, which include collaboration in various fields, such as political, economic, cultural and more. This auspicious occasion of the renewal of the relations is close to my heart, as my father, the late Sixth President of the State of Israel, Chaim Herzog was the President at the time.

As we mark this significant landmark in our relations, I hope to see us fulfil an additional milestone, in the opening of the Azerbaijan Embassy in Israel. This will be a natural step succeeding the opening of the Tourism Office and the Trade Representation Office, and an attest to our close and strategic ties.

I would like to reiterate my invitation to Your Excellency to visit Israel during this upcoming year, so we may jointly inaugurate your new embassy.

It gives me great pleasure to also wish you and all the people of the Republic of Azerbaijan a very happy and healthy Novruz.

May these relations continue to expand and deepen in the future."
