Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia D.N. Medoev sent a congratulatory message to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation S.V. Lavrov on the occasion of his birthday.
The congratulation, in particular, says:
In these most difficult crucial times, under your leadership, the Russian Foreign Ministry is firmly, reasonably and consistently defending the national interests of the state, is impeding attempts to falsify our common history, is fighting large-scale information provocations, through doing everything possible to resolve all contradictions in the political mainstream.
Dear Sergey Viktorovich, while emphasizing your great contribution to the development of the inextricable friendship and brotherhood between the peoples of Ossetia and Russia, as well as your principled support for our republic in the international arena, I am expressing my firm conviction that the strategic nature of bilateral relations will further develop positively, entirely responding to the vital and long-term national interests of our countries.
