Press Statement

Secretary of State

Washington, DC

June 4, 2018

On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I offer congratulations on your Constitution Day on June 5th.

Our countries have maintained diplomatic relations since 1801, and our friendship is robust and deeply rooted in our shared values. In the Arctic, championing human rights, promoting stability, strengthening civil society, and expanding trade and investment, Denmark has been a true and faithful partner. American ties to the Kingdom stretch from Greenland, where American scientists conduct research, to the Faroe Islands where we work together on economic diversification, and to Denmark itself. We value this important relationship and our mutual goals for peace and security so evident in our NATO Alliance.

As you celebrate democracy and the importance of civic responsibility, know that your American partners share those same ideals and wish you happiness in the years to come.
