On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I offer my sincere congratulations to the people of Belgium as they celebrate their national day.

Through two world wars, the founding of NATO, and the fight against terrorism, the United States and Belgium built a strong history of working together for the common good of all our people. Our shared values of democracy, human rights, and economic development have enabled us to increase prosperity and global stability.

The United States looks forward to continuing its enduring relationship with Belgium as we confront mutual challenges and reap the benefits of shared achievements.
