On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Armenia as you celebrate your Independence Day on September 21.
I experienced the hospitality of the Armenian people first hand when I visited Yerevan earlier this year. I was honored to spend the Fourth of July – our national independence day – in Armenia, and I am proud to commemorate Armenia’s rich culture and many achievements on your independence celebration.
Americans of Armenian heritage have made many contributions to the United States over the years, deepening the ties of friendship and affection between our countries. We are committed to expanding our cooperation and building a promising future for all our citizens.
I wish the people of Armenia a safe and happy independence day, with peace and prosperity in the year ahead.

Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
