The Honourable Darren A. Henfield, MP, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and His Excellency Sergey V. Lavrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, exchanged congratulatory messages today on the occasion of fifteen (15) years of diplomatic relations between the two countries (14 January 2004).

Minister Henfield, in his message, noted that The Bahamas and Russia, in their short but important official ties, have enjoyed friendly and cordial relations based on mutual trust and respect. He noted that the two countries support the fundamental principles of international law, which have fostered common ground for friendship and co-operation. In that vein, he welcomed the mutual support extended in their successful bids for membership on international bodies, as well as their commitments in the spheres of sustainable development and climate change, and the fight against drug trafficking, terrorism and organised crime.

Ministers Henfield and Lavrov expressed their desire for both countries to continue working cordially together to strengthen the scope of their existing relations at the international level as well as bilaterally.

Minister Henfield also took the opportunity to extend congratulations to Minister Lavrov for the fifteenth anniversary of this appointment and service as Minister of Foreign Affairs of his country.
