To all those observing Tsagaan Sar, the Mongolian celebration of the start of the lunisolar new year, I send you my best wishes.

The United States and Mongolia are close democratic partners, and the bonds of friendship between our peoples are strong.  As this new year begins, I am excited about the possibility for even deeper partnership between our countries.

Whether you are celebrating in Mongolia, the United States, or elsewhere in the world, I hope the Year of the Dragon will bring you joy, peace, and prosperity.

Happy Tsagaan Sar!  Сар шинэдээ сайхан шинэлээрэй!
