Statement

Location: Washington, DC

On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Latvia as you celebrate the 94th anniversary of your independence this November 18. You have made progress under difficult circumstances and demonstrated what can be accomplished through hard work, pride in country, and an unwavering faith in democracy.

The United States is proud of our long shared history as strategic allies, valued partners, and close friends. Since 1918, American support for the sovereign people of Latvia has never wavered. Today, Latvia and the United States remain steadfast partners. From cooperation in Afghanistan to exploring new business opportunities, the ties between our two countries only grow stronger.

On this special day, I send my deepest congratulations to all the people of Latvia and look forward to strengthening our cooperation even more as we promote the fundamental values we both cherish.
