On behalf of President Trump and the American people, I congratulate all Bulgarians as you celebrate your National Day.

Bulgaria is a NATO Ally and a close partner, and the United States is proud of our countries’ enduring cooperation. Our relationship is strong, and it will continue to strengthen as we work together to support economic growth through increased trade and investment, to improve safety and security for all of our citizens, and to facilitate deeper people-to-people ties through educational and cultural exchanges.

The United States looks forward to many more years of committed friendship and partnership with Bulgaria.
