Relations between our two countries are indeed very special, a result of the continued strength of the bonds of friendship and cooperation that bring us together.

It is necessary that our two countries continue making use of our mutual trust and respect in order to develop ever closer and intense relations. We maintain the firm conviction that this is the path that better answers the interest and feelings of our peoples.
