Croatia Statehood Day


Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary of State

As Croatia celebrates its Statehood Day, it is a privilege for me to offer my congratulations on behalf of the United States government and the American people.


The United States values Croatia’s leadership and our strong bilateral partnership more than ever.  As a NATO Ally and EU member, Croatia is a cornerstone of stability, security, and economic prosperity in the region and indeed across Europe.  The United States congratulates Croatia on its successful inaugural EU Presidency amidst an unprecedented global pandemic.


As you celebrate your holiday, I wish happiness and good health to the people of Croatia during this unusual and challenging time for us all.  We look forward to working together to achieve our common goals.
