Spanish National Day October 12

On behalf of the United States government, I extend my sincere congratulations to the people of Spain as you celebrate your National Day on October 12.

Spain is an indispensable ally and close friend of the United States. The strong partnership between our two countries is reflected in the growing economic, cultural and educational exchanges between our citizens. I traveled to Spain in June for the 2022 NATO Summit to strengthen our strong partnership to promote international peace, defend transatlantic security, defend human rights and increase the economic prosperity of our nations. Our countries’ joint response to Putin’s war of aggression against Ukraine highlights our close cooperation in defending democracy and the rules-based international order.

On this special occasion, we look forward to deepening our friendship, strengthening our historical and cultural ties and expanding cooperation based on our common values. Happy Fiesta Nacional de España to all our Spanish friends!
