The U.S. Embassy in Helsinki welcomes the visit of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. This visit will accentuate the close friendship and strong partnership between the United States and Finland. The Secretary of State will consult with our Finnish partners on our shared regional and global priorities.
We look forward to a full, robust program that highlights the close cooperation we enjoy with Finland on a wide variety of issues and that emphasizes our partnership in terms of our mutual democratic values and traditions, the goals of peace and prosperity we promote, and the new challenges we must face: economic recovery, gender issues, energy security and climate change.
