Your Excellency,

On the occasion of India’s 74th Republic Day today, I would like to express my warmest wishes for a great day to the people of India and the Republic of India.

We, as a neighboring country, are exceptionally delighted and proud that this wonderful day has been successfully maintained for more than 74 years. I convey our wishes that you continue to achieve success for many more years to come.

Our Myanmar and India are neighboring countries that are connected by historical traditions. cultural heritage, faith and customary practices. We have travelled through the turning points of history together and shared the good and bad impacts of history together. Therefore, we, the people of Myanmar, are incredibly proud of the fact that India has emerged as a powerful country in the region in the past decades.

We also hope that India will understand the struggle of the Myanmar people to end the military dictatorship once and for all, just as we have gone through the ups and downs of history together. Our National Unity government and the people of Myanmar, we understand the importance of India in the region. The new Federal Democratic Union that we are envisioning can only spread stability and peace in the region and will make the interests and economic projects of India more productive. We expect more cooperation with India in the form of future nation.

India is one of the world’s largest democracies and it is also a democratic state that our people of Myanmar aspire to in the Asian region. We express our wishes that the democratic torch of the Republic of India tine on the people of Myanmar who are fighting to end the military dictatorship.

Peace be upon the people of India. Long live the Republic of India.
