U.S. envoy: We are proud to support Azerbaijan’s sovereignty, independence (VIDEO)
The US and Azerbaijan share an important partnership, said US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Earle D. Litzenberger in a video message on the occasion of July 4 – his country’s Independence Day.
“We’re proud to support your sovereignty and independence,” said the ambassador.
He pointed out that usually on July 4, the US Embassy hosts a celebration of the US Independence Day.
“Last year we welcomed many of our good friends from Azerbaijan to a great event in the Embassy garden, and many more of you joined the party via our Facebook live stream. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic we cannot gather as usual this year. Despite these challenges, this doesn't mean that we can't virtually celebrate America's 244th birthday,” said Litzenberger.
