On behalf of the people and Government of India and on my own behalf, I extend our warm greetings and felicitations to Your Excellency and to the Government and friendly people of the Hellenic Republic, on the occasion of your Independence Day, which also marks the 200th anniversary of the Independence of Greece.
India and Greece share a rich historical past and civilizational links, both having contributed to and being enriched by each other’s philosophy, art and culture. I firmly believe that through our continued and enhanced mutual understanding and engagement, our bilateral relations will grow stronger in the coming years for the mutual benefit of our two countries.
I convey my best wishes for Your Excellency’s personal health and well-being and for the success and prosperity of the friendly people of the Hellenic Republic.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
(Ram Nath Kovind)
