US Secretary of State acknowledges Bermuda Day

US Secretary of State John Kerry has issued the following statement in honour of Bermuda Day celebrations on Friday:

“On behalf of President Barack Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the Bermudian people as you celebrate Bermuda Day,” he said in a press release issued by the US Consulate this morning.

“Our relationship stretches back centuries, and is sustained through deep links ranging from immigration to trade to tourism and, of course, an abiding commitment to democracy. It is no small fact that Bermuda is home to the world’s third-oldest, continuous parliament.

“As you celebrate Bermuda Day with a traditional parade and take that first swim of the season at one of your famed beaches, the United States extends greetings of good will and best wishes.”
