The United States congratulates Alejandro Giammattei on his election as the next president of Guatemala.  We commend the people of Guatemala for their participation in a successful, free, fair, and transparent election.

The United States shares a deep, historic relationship with Guatemala and looks forward to continuing our close partnership on a number of areas of mutual national interest, including addressing the underlying conditions driving irregular migration.

We encourage both the outgoing and incoming administrations to work closely together to ensure a smooth, democratic transition.
