President of India’s message on the eve of Independence Day of Mozambique

The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee has extended his greetings and felicitations to the Government and people of the Republic of Mozambique on the eve of their Independence Day (June 25, 2016).

In a message to His Excellency Mr. Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, the President of the Republic of Mozambique, the President has said, “On behalf of the Government and the people of India, as well as on my own behalf, it gives me great pleasure to convey to Your Excellency and to the people of Mozambique warm greetings and felicitations on the occasion of your Independence Day.

India and Mozambique share warm and close bilateral relations, which have been expanding in recent years, to the mutual benefit of both our peoples. Your State Visit to India in August, 2015 followed by the participation of Prime Minister of Mozambique in the IAFS-III Summit in Delhi in October, 2015 has reinvigorated our bilateral relationship.

I am confident that the visit of Prime Minister of India to Mozambique this year will further contribute to strengthening the friendship and cooperation between India and Mozambique.

Please accept, Excellency, my best wishes for your personal health and well being as well as for the progress and prosperity of the friendly people of Mozambique”.
