On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of the Principality of Liechtenstein on the occasion of your National Day on August 15.

The United States and Liechtenstein have a longstanding relationship that has endured since 1926, when we signed our first treaty.

Our two nations share a deep interest in supporting democracy, defending human rights and promoting gender equality around the world.

The United States and Liechtenstein are also united by our close commercial ties and common support for free markets worldwide.

As you celebrate this day, we wish you peace and prosperity for the coming year.
