Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev has sent his greetings to the U.S.

President Barack Obama on his 50th jubilee, the Azerbaijani President's
official website reported Wednesday.

"Please accept my sincere congratulations on your 50th anniversary.

It is with great pleasure that I emphasize that friendly and
cooperative relations between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the
United States of America enjoy all-round and dynamic development.

Our active joint work towards ensuring energy security and fighting
against global threats and international terrorism has elevated our
relations to the level of strategic partnership.

We also praise the United States` attention towards our region. In this
context, the continuous efforts of your country and personally yours,
Mr. President, are of great importance for the soonest resolution of
the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which resulted in
the occupation of our lands and expulsion of our compatriots from
their homelands. It is my hope that these efforts will succeed in
the near future, resulting in a peaceful and just resolution of the
conflict in accordance with international legal norms.

On this remarkable day, Mr. President, I wish you robust health,
family happiness and successes in your activity for the prosperity
of the friendly American people" the greetings say.
