WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. President Barack Obama has described U.S.-Armenian relations as “strong” and pledged to deepen them in the future.

“The American people join me in sending best wishes as you commemorate the 23rd anniversary of Armenia’s independence on September 21.

Armenia and the United States have a strong history rooted in partnership and friendship. The people-to-people, cultural and economic ties that bind our countries are impressive and inspiring. We recognize and honor Armenia’s rich cultural heritage and the many contributions Americans of Armenian descent have made to the United States over the years. The U.S.-Armenia relationship remains strong, and we look forward to continuing and deepening our cooperation for many years to come.” Obama said in a weekend letter to President Serzh Sarkisian that congratulated him on Armenia’s Independence Day.

“The deep bonds between the United States and Armenia are strong,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said for his part. “We will continue to strengthen our partnership with Armenia in various dimensions including security cooperation, economic and democratic development, and expanding people-to-people exchanges.”
