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

The longstanding partnership between our nations is firmly grounded in the interests we share and the values we uphold, including a firm commitment to the promotion of human rights, peace, and democracy around the world.

The United States applauds Liechtenstein for its contributions to global justice, especially in the financial sphere, where you have played an increasingly positive role in the fight against tax fraud, money laundering, and financing for terrorists and organized crime.

On this special day, I offer my best wishes to you all for a safe and prosperous year to come.
