Chairman, The Presidium of the National Assembly, The People's Republic of Bulgaria
Comrade Georgi Damyanov:
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the liberation of Bulgaria, I convey sincere and warm congratulations to you and, through you, to the Bulgarian people and government.
Over the past ten years, the Bulgarian people, under the leadership of the Communist Party and following the teachings of Comrade Dimitrov, 1 have consolidated the people's democratic system and attained glorious achievements in the socialist construction of their country. This has not only inspired the Chinese people who are in the midst of their socialist construction, but also has strengthened the forces for world peace and democracy headed by the Soviet Union.
May the Bulgarian people achieve even greater new victories in the struggle to build socialism and to safeguard world peace. (Signed and dated in Beijing)
