Vientiane, 27 March 2023
On behalf of the Government and the entire Lao people and on my own behalf, I have a great honour to extend my warmest congratulations and best wishes to Your Excellency and the friendly people of South Africa on the occasion of the 29th Anniversary of the National Day of the Republic of South Africa.
I highly value the friendly relations and good cooperation between the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and the Republic of South Africa over the past years. I am confident that the existing friendly relations between our two countries will be further developed in the years to come for mutual benefits of the peoples of our two nations.
May I take this opportunity to wish Your Excellency good health, well-being and greater success in your noble tasks, and the friendly people of South Africa continued progress and prosperity.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
His Excellency Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa
President of the Republic of South Africa
