Congratulatory Message from President Tony Tan Keng Yam to President Pranab Mukherjee
13 August 2012
His Excellency Pranab Mukherjee
Republic of India
On behalf of the people of Singapore, please accept my warmest congratulations and best wishes to Your Excellency and the people of India on the occasion of India’s 65th Independence Day.
Singapore and India enjoy deep historical ties and strong links. Regular exchanges of high-level visits, most recently that of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Singapore in November 2011 and of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to India in July 2012, have contributed in no small part to the excellent relations between our two countries. I am confident that Singapore and India will build upon the momentum of positive engagement and continue to explore new areas for collaboration.
Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
DR TONY TAN KENG YAM

Dear Prime Minister,
On behalf of the Government and people of Singapore, I extend my warmest congratulations to you on the auspicious occasion of the 65th Independence Day of the Republic of India.
The friendship between Singapore and India is strong and abiding. It extends not only to our political relations and economic links, but increasingly our people-to-people interactions too. Our countries cooperate closely across a wide range of sectors bilaterally, within ASEAN and at international forums. I would like to thank you for your personal attention to our excellent relations. I look to continuing working with you to enhance our ties for mutual benefit.
I look forward to seeing you again in India at the ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit in December.
Lee Hsien Loong
His Excellency Dr Manmohan Singh
Republic of India
