The full message of the President:

Dear Ms.Aung San Suu Kyi,

As the President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, and on behalf of my Government and the people I congratulate you following your historic landslide victory in the elections.

As the leader of the National League for Democracy we observed you were fearlessly campaigning for democracy in Myanmar, for decades.

With your historic victory you brought Myanmar into the international family of democracies.

The bilateral, religious, cultural and trade relations between our two countries are existing for over hundreds of years.

Once again please accept my heartfelt congratulations on the people’s victory.

May your wisdom and courage continue to bring progress and happiness to all in Myanmar and, indeed, throughout the world.

Thank you.
