Press Statement


Congratulations to the people of Luxembourg on the occasion of the Grand Duke’s official birthday. On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I am honored to recognize our strong partnership and the close friendship between our peoples.

This year marks the 120th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United States and Luxembourg. Our enduring bond was forged on the battle fields of World War I and World War II, the foundation of our commitment to advancing global freedom and prosperity today.

As founding members of NATO, the United States and Luxembourg strengthen transatlantic security, support rules-based international order, and protect freedom in the face of global threats. As members of the United Nations Human Rights Council, we stand together for human rights and dignity for all people around the world. Together, we continue to hold Russia accountable for its unprovoked and unjustified war against Ukraine and we continue to support the people of Ukraine.

The people of the United States and Luxembourg will also continue to work together to combat pressing global challenges, including climate change, and the peaceful exploration and use of outer space.

Today I join you in celebrating Luxembourg National Day and send my best wishes for the health and prosperity of all Luxembourgish people.
