Dear President Ivanov:
It is with great pleasure that we at the United Macedonian Diaspora congratulate you on your inauguration as the 4th President of the Republic of Macedonia.
Today, Macedonia faces great challenges. Principal among them are the name dispute with Greece, and attacks on the Macedonian people, nation and sovereignty.
UMD is confident that, under your able leadership, Macedonia will meet these challenges with strength and courage, that it will continue to protect its sovereign constitutional name and identity, pursue democratic reforms, and address pressing social and economic needs.
UMD will remain steadfastly aligned with the people of Macedonia, and will promote greater mutual understanding between Macedonia and the community of nations.
We look forward to your initiatives to strengthen relationships throughout Southeast Europe. UMD joins millions of Macedonians throughout the world in wishing you every success as the nation’s new President.
With utmost respect,
