Please accept my best wishes as you and the people of Switzerland celebrate your National Day on August 1.

The United States and Switzerland share a long and positive relationship, grounded in a commitment to common values, democratic institutions, and economic development.

Switzerland’s dedication to peace and the rule of law, its support for humanitarian assistance, and actions in support of international security are greatly respected by the people of the United States. We are particularly grateful for your longstanding assistance and commitment to representing U.S. interests in Tehran.

We look forward to continued cooperation and friendship, partnering to address global challenges and collaborating on initiatives that will enhance our already strong trade and investment relationship.

On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I am pleased to wish the Swiss people peace and prosperity in the years to come.
