On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to Argentines as you celebrate your independence day this July 9.
Argentina and the United States share important common values that have helped shape and strengthen our relationship. We are committed to strengthening democracy and promoting fundamental freedoms. We are working to expand social inclusion, promote scientific excellence, and increase the exchange of students and scholars between our countries.
I hope you enjoy the locro and asados during your Independence Day celebrations. As you celebrate with family, friends, and loved ones, know that the United States stands with you as a partner and friend.
