On behalf of the people of the United States of America, I congratulate the Romanian people as you celebrate Great Union Day.

This year, the United States and Romania, celebrating140 years of diplomatic relations, reaffirmed and deepened our longstanding close partnership by signing a ten-year defense cooperation roadmap, creating clean 5G networks, collaborating on the construction of reactors at the Cernavoda nuclear power plant, committing to improve energy security in Europe via the Black Sea, and furthering the growth-generating potential of the Three Seas Initiative.  Romania is a valued strategic partner and steadfast Ally, and we share your commitment to fight COVID-19 while never forgetting the sacrifices you have made in NATO operations.

As you mark this special day, we wish you peace, prosperity, and good health in the year to come.
