On behalf of the United States Government and the American people, I congratulate the German people as they come together to celebrate the Day of German Unity. This special occasion marks three decades of a unified and democratic Germany standing as a symbol of freedom and self-determination.
Germany and the United States share a strong historic bond based on our shared values, ideals, and a commitment to transatlantic security. Together, we will continue to defend freedom, advance security and prosperity, counter injustice, and foster the people-to-people connections that inspire future generations.
Congratulations and warm wishes to all Germans. We join with you in honoring thirty years of unification and wish you a successful and prosperous year.
