On behalf of the people of the Republic of Kazakhstan and on my own behalf, I extend warm and heartfelt congratulations on the occasion of the national holiday of the Republic of South Africa, the Freedom Day.
Today, your country has made significant progress in strengthening its foundations, multiplying the welfare of its citizens, as well as solidifying its reputation on the international arena. And I wish your esteemed state, which adheres to the principles of sovereignty and equality, cohesion, solidarity and unity, to achieve its anticipated goals.
We consider your country as one of our reliable and important partners on the African continent. I am confident that our relations, based on the traditional friendship and mutual understanding between Kazakhstan and South Africa, will continue to strengthen and develop in the future for the mutual benefit of our peoples.
I take this opportunity, Your Excellency, to wish you every success in your highest endeavours and implementation of your valuable initiatives, as well as prosperity and well-being to the friendly people of South Africa.
