H. E. Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil
President of the Republic of India
New Delhi.
 
It is with great pleasure that I convey to you and through you to the Government and the People of the Republic of India the warm felicitations of the people of Sri Lanka on the occasion of the Republic Day of India which falls on 26th January 2011.
 
India’s emergence as a Republic in 1950 forms a monumental event in the history of the anti-colonial struggle of developing countries. The Indian independence movement and the high ideals set by its leadership continues to inspire those of us in Sri Lanka as well as people around the world.
 

It is a source of utmost satisfaction that our bilateral relations have today grown and diversified to cover almost all aspect of human endeavour. Our ties, built on the bedrock of our civilizational linkages, would no doubt continue to evolve and prosper in the time to come.

 While being confident that the longstanding friendship between our two countries would be further enhanced in the years ahead, I recall with pleasure my recent State Visit to your great country which paved the way for further broadening and deepening our multifaceted bilateral relations.

With assurances of my highest consideration and my personal good wishes to Your Excellency for continued good health, happiness and success.

 
Mahinda Rajapaksa
President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka
