On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Argentina as you celebrate your Independence Day this July 9.

As you honor your founding, your rich history, and turn your attention toward the celebration on Avenida 9 de Julio, the United States joins you as a partner and friend. This is a time to reflect on our mutual commitment to advancing human rights, expanding educational opportunities, and spurring even greater science and technology innovations.

On this special day, the United States wishes all Argentines a happy celebration, and we look forward to continuing to work together to give more people in both our countries the opportunity to live up to their potential.
