Washington, DC (STL.News) Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken released the following statement:

On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I send congratulations to the people of Estonia as you celebrate the 103rd anniversary of your independence.

The United States and Estonia share a strong commitment to global security, economic opportunity, and democratic values.  As NATO Allies, we are working proudly together to further adapt NATO to meet today’s security challenges.  As members of the United Nations Security Council, we are promoting human rights and the rule of law and taking steps to address the global climate crisis.  We value our partnership to bolster defense capabilities, trade and investment, and people-to-people connections, as well as Estonia’s contributions to a strong U.S.-EU relationship.

Best wishes to the people of Estonia on this special day.  I look forward to continuing our close relationship.
