“I highly appreciate the intention of Latvia to allocate two percent of its gross domestic product on defense, which is a good example for the allocation of costs between allies. I also appreciate the participation of Latvia in the missions ensuring security and fighting terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq. I’m a true admirer, as Latvia regained its independence and was transformed into a prosperous democracy. Today, I’m proud I can confirm once again that the United States will remain a steadfast friend and ally of Latvia,” – said in a letter to the President of the United States.
In addition, the President of the United States, as a former businessman, raised the issue of business cooperation between the two countries.

The American leader also thanked the residents for their basketball player who plays for his favourite basketball team.
“Let me as a fan of the “new York Knicks” (NBA, ed.), to say that I appreciate very much the contributions of an NBA star Caspar Porzingis from Latvia,” – said in the letter.
