Zagreb, November 5, 2008

Dear President Elect,

On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Croatia and myself
personally, please accept our heartfelt congratulations on your
overwhelming victory as the next President of the United States of
America.

The sincere and dedicated manner in which you led your campaign and
the enthusiasm that you bring to this most important duty, provides
tremendous hope for the future of not only the American people, but
the community of nations to which we all belong and in which
opportunities to improve liberty, democracy and international
cooperation around the world will no doubt be enhanced.

Croatia stands ready to continue working closely with the United
States to strenghthen our common values of liberty and democracy
around the globe in order to make the world a more peaceful and more
secure place.

The strong Croatian-American friendship and political partnership is
deeply rooted not only in our shared values, but also in the
millions of Croatian Americans who have for generations contributed
to the development of their two cherished countries, the United
States of America and Croatia. I look forward to solidifying our
partnership as Croatia joins NATO in the spring 2009 as I am
convinced that our day to day cooperation within the Alliance will
further enhance our friendship.

Mr. President Elect, congratulations once again on your hard fought
victory. On the behalf of the people of Croatia I wish you and the
United States of America much success in the years to come.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Ivo Sanader
