Secretary Pompeo’s Message on Argentina’s Independence Day

On behalf of the Government of the United States, I extend my best wishes to the people of Argentina on the 203rd anniversary of your independence.

The United States and Argentina enjoy a deep partnership, founded upon shared commitments to democracy and human rights, strong economic ties, and science and technology cooperation.  I applaud Argentina for its leadership in promoting democracy, transparency, good governance, and security in the region and around the world, as evidenced by its hosting of the successful G20 Leaders’ Summit in 2018 and its unwavering support for the restoration of democracy in Venezuela through the Lima Group.

Happy Independence Day, Argentina! ¡Al gran pueblo Argentino, salud!  Your friends in the United States wish you peace and prosperity in the year ahead.
