On behalf of the government of the United States of America, I congratulate the Sammarinese people as you celebrate the Founding of the Republic of San Marino. As the world’s oldest surviving republic, San Marino has stood for more than a millennium as a beacon of democratic principles and self-governance. The United States values its partnership with San Marino and looks forward to continuing our strong relations.
