On behalf of the United States of America, I extend warm wishes to all Korean people as they celebrate the joyous occasion of Chuseok.

This special holiday, steeped in tradition and cultural significance, brings families, friends, and communities together. We are reminded of the enduring spirit of friendship and cooperation that strengthens the bond between our two nations.

During this Chuseok holiday, may the spirit of camaraderie and shared values continue to guide our journey together. The strong friendship between our countries is a beacon of hope and progress, exemplifying the potential that arises when like-minded nations collaborate.

May this Chuseok season bring joy, harmony, and prosperity to all.
