Mr Medvedev’s message of congratulations reads, in particular:
“We in Russia have great respect for your work as head of state of Mongolia and highly value your consistent policy of developing bilateral relations in a spirit of strategic partnership. This firm commitment was convincingly reaffirmed by the outcome of our recent bilateral talks in Moscow.
Your contribution to developing humanitarian cooperation between our countries is also very important. On the eve of your birthday I was pleased to be able to personally express to you my gratitude for the warm feelings you have for our country and for your love of the Russian language and Russian literature. The A.S. Pushkin Medal and the title of honorary doctor of the A.M. Gorky Literature Institute testify to your services in professional Russian studies and to your efforts to strengthen the cultural, scientific and educational ties between our countries”.
