On the occasion of Monaco’s 163rd National Day, la Fête du Prince, I extend my sincerest congratulations to Monaco on behalf of the people and the Government of the United States of America.

The United States and Monaco have counted on each other’s friendship for over 150 years.  Our two countries share a deep commitment to promoting greater freedom, transparency, and human rights.  The strength of this partnership can also be found in our economic relationship and strong cultural connections, and the United States is proud of our historic ties.  We look forward to working together with the Monegasque people and the Government of Monaco to further develop the friendship between our nations.
