I congratulate President-elect Luis Lacalle Pou and the people of Uruguay on holding successful Presidential elections on November 24.  The United States and Uruguay enjoy a long-standing and mutually beneficial partnership that is testimony to our many shared democratic values and priorities.  We look forward to continuing to work with Uruguay to promote these shared values, which have framed our long-standing bilateral relations for the past 150 years.
