On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Denmark as you celebrate your Constitution Day this June 5.

The United States and Denmark share a deep and enduring partnership. A few days ago, I had the chance to experience firsthand the hospitality and warmth of the Danish people, and reaffirm our commitment to solving a wide range of challenges. Together, we are working to combat climate change, promote green energy and support lasting peace and stability throughout the Middle East and North Africa. We are grateful for Denmark’s global leadership as we continue to tackle the challenges of the 21st century.

Our relationship is a testament to the common values our people share and to the mutual interests that unite us. As you celebrate this special day, know that the people of United States stand with you as friends and partners.
