On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I send my warm regards to the Mongolian people as you gather for the opening of this year’s Naadam Festival on July 11.

The United States and Mongolia have built a strong partnership rooted in our shared commitment to societies respectful of human rights, democracy, and the rule of law. We look back over thirty-two years of diplomatic ties with pride, and look forward to deepened relations as third neighbors and Indo-Pacific partners.

On this occasion for celebration, may the people of Mongolia enjoy a wonderful Naadam.
