On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Andorra on the occasion of Our Lady of Meritxell Day on September 8.

Andorrans are rightly proud of your beautiful country, founded on the principles of democracy, human rights, and justice for all. Throughout our 20 years of diplomatic relations, the United States and Andorra have worked to promote these principles, and we will continue to advance our shared values and confront new challenges together.

I offer the people of Andorra best wishes for a joyful celebration.
