I extend warm and friendly greetings to you and, through you, to the people of your country on the occasion of the 69th anniversary of Korea's liberation.

The history and tradition of the DPRK-Russia friendship which were provided in the flames of the grim anti-Japanese war and given a steady continuity for decades are steadily developing in depth in conformity with the aspiration and desire of the two peoples.

Convinced that the friendly and cooperative relations between our two countries will grow stronger in various fields in the spirit of the joint documents agreed upon at the highest level, I wish you greater success in your responsible work to build rich and strong Russia.
