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 relationship between the United States and Liechtenstein is nearly a century old. Our nations share a commitment to democracy, human rights and creating shared prosperity for all people.

We are creating economic opportunity through our commitment to free markets and by combating money laundering and other illegal banking activities.

I look forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come.
