“July 4th, Independence Day in the United States of America, is traditionally a day of family and community festivities.”
“This year the United States, Turkey, and the world face unprecedented challenges. But it is exactly at times like this that the United States and Turkey have stood together to face difficult challenges in the past. And through our partnership and our shared goals, we have – and always shall – overcome.”
“Until we can celebrate in person, thank you for joining us virtually.
To the thousands of our fellow Americans living in Turkey, Happy 4thof July!”
