On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I extend warm congratulations to the people of Slovenia as you celebrate the anniversary of your independence.  Your country has worked hard to foster a thriving economy and vibrant democracy over the past 28 years, and we greatly appreciate Slovenia’s steadfast commitment to our Transatlantic values and international security.

Our close cooperation as NATO Allies and trade and investment partners strengthens our bilateral relationship. The United States also applauds Slovenia’s leadership role in hosting the recent summit of the Three Seas Initiative.

Best wishes to the people of Slovenia as you celebrate your 28th Statehood Day.
