On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to congratulate the people of Estonia as you celebrate the 94th anniversary of your independence this February 24th.
Through hard work, innovation, and a pursuit of strong democratic ideals, enhanced security and greater cooperation, Estonia has emerged as an example to the region and the world. Estonia’s integration of technology into public and private partnerships demonstrates the endless possibilities that technology can have when harnessed to benefit societies. Your cooperation with the region has made Estonia an invaluable ally in NATO, and the United States appreciates Estonia’s continuing commitment to our shared mission in Afghanistan.
As you celebrate this special day, know that the United States stands with you as a partner, ally, and friend as we work together towards a bright and prosperous future for all our people.
