On behalf of the United States government, best wishes on the occasion of Argentina’s 201st anniversary of independence on July 9.

The United States and Argentina share a long history of friendship and a commitment to work together toward a more prosperous future at home and in the region. This partnership continues to deepen, as evidenced by the productive meeting between our two Presidents in April. Our renewed friendship is built on a shared commitment to grow our economies, cooperate on security and law enforcement, and increase educational and scientific collaboration.

The United States of America wishes the Argentine people a happy Independence Day celebration and many years of future peace and prosperity.
