On behalf of the United States government and the American people, I am pleased to extend our congratulations to the people of Serbia as you celebrate your national day.

The United States remains committed to supporting Serbia’s goal of further Western integration. Normalizing relations with Kosovo, with mutual recognition as its foundation, is essential to the pursuit of this goal. It will take courage and leadership to unlock stability and prosperity for Serbia for generations to come and ensure your country realizes its full potential.

On your national day, we reflect on our historically strong friendship and look ahead to building an even deeper bilateral relationship between our countries.
