"Your Serene Highness,
On behalf of the American people, I send my best wishes to the people of Liechtenstein as you celebrate 300 years of independence.
Since the beginning of the bilateral relationship between our two countries, Liechtenstein has been a valued and steadfast partner. The United States especially commends your dedication to fighting financial crime and providing humanitarian assistance to the victims of terrorism and civil strife. My administration is also pleased that Liechtenstein companies have created thousands of jobs in the Unites States.
I look forward to continued friendship and cooperation between the United States and Liechtenstein.
