We congratulate President-elect Sebastian Piñera on his election and the Chilean people for another exemplary election process which illustrated again Chile’s enormous respect for democracy.

Chile is a valued partner of the United States in many areas, including international peacekeeping operations in Haiti, and is a leader in the promotion of democracy and stability in the region.

We look forward to working with President-elect Piñera to deepen our partnership and advance common goals for the benefit of our two peoples and the Americas.
