Press Statement on Nepali Constitution Day by Secretary of State, Antony J. Blinken
September 19, 2021


On behalf of the people and the Government of the United States of America, I warmly congratulate you and the people of Nepal as you celebrate your Constitution Day on September 19.

This past year has seen our relationship grow as we have confronted shared challenges.  In particular, we worked together to combat the COVID‑19 pandemic and tackle the climate crisis.  We celebrate an enduring friendship that has strengthened through the bonds of people-to-people ties and our nearly 75 years of diplomatic relations.

I extend my best wishes to all Nepalis on this special occasion.
