On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Austria as you celebrate your 57th National Day this October 26th.
Today we have the chance to reflect on the contributions Austria has made towards the advancement of peace and prosperity in the world. From your strong support of international organizations, to your historic achievements in the arts, science, business, and technology, Austrians are a shining example of the power of a free and prosperous people. Our work together in the Balkans has provided millions of people with the prospect of a more tolerant and peaceful future.
The United States is fortunate to have a strong and enduring partner in Austria, and I look forward to an even stronger relationship in the years to come.
