On the Occasion of Bermuda Day

Press Statement
John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
May 21, 2013


On behalf of President Barack Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the Bermudian people as you celebrate Bermuda Day.

Our relationship stretches back centuries, and is sustained through deep links ranging from immigration to trade to tourism and, of course, an abiding commitment to democracy. It is no small fact that Bermuda is home to the world’s third-oldest, continuous parliament.

As you celebrate Bermuda Day with a traditional parade and take that first swim of the season at one of your famed beaches, the United States extends greetings of good will and best wishes.
