On the occasion of the National Day of the Swiss Confederation, I am pleased to send you my sincerest congratulations, accompanied by wishes of peace and well-being for the Swiss people.
I take this opportunity to note the upward pace of development of Moldovan-Swiss relations, based on close ties of friendship.
In the extraordinary circumstances we are in, I would like to express my gratitude for the solidarity shown by the Swiss Confederation and for the valuable support it offers to the Republic of Moldova in combating the spread of COVID-19 virus, as well as for substantial assistance to modernize my country, including the health sector. At the same time, I would like to share my distinguished feelings with all those who have been affected by this severe pandemic in the Swiss Confederation. I strongly believe that through cohesion we will be able to overcome the difficult test.
I also express my confidence that the dialogue between our countries will continue to be strengthened in areas of common interest, and the celebration, this year, of the 20th anniversary of the initiation of Swiss development cooperation in the Republic of Moldova will allows us to open new opportunities for intensifying political dialogue, developing trade and economic cooperation, as well as strengthening socio-cultural projects.
Reiterating the wishes of continued prosperity and progress for the Swiss people, please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
