On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Montenegro as you celebrate your Statehood Day this July 13.
The United States and Montenegro share a long history of partnership and cooperation that reaches back over a hundred years. Our shared vision for the Western Balkans – one where every country in the region realizes its Euro-Atlantic aspirations – is resulting in lasting stability and prosperity. And Montenegro is leading the way as a candidate country with both NATO and the European Union.
On this Statehood Day, the United States celebrates with you as your partner and friend. We are committed to this relationship and will continue to work closely together for a brighter future for all Montenegrins.
