On behalf of the United States of America, I send my warm wishes to the people of Germany as they celebrate 33 years of reunification on this German Unity Day.

The American and German people share an inherent commitment to defend and promote democratic institutions, human rights, and fundamental freedoms. Over the years, our friendship has grown into a multi-faceted partnership. Today, the United States views Germany as a key G7 partner, vital NATO Ally, and a global leader in the fight against climate change.

We are grateful for Germany’s commitment to defend freedom from tyranny and aggression, and its unwavering support for Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence.

Today, I join you in celebrating German Unity Day and look forward to continuing to work towards our shared vision of a free, open, secure, and prosperous world.
