75th Anniversary of the Council of Europe

The United States extends warm congratulations to the Council of Europe as it celebrates its 75th anniversary. The Council of Europe remains a beacon for democracy, human rights, and the rule of law that grows brighter each year.

For the past 28 years, the United States has collaborated with the Council of Europe on a wide range of issues, including advancing human rights, combatting corruption, and countering terrorism. We are proud to be full members of the Venice Commission and the Group of States Against Corruption, and an observer to the European Commission Against Racism and Intolerance. We are also pleased to be a founding Associate Member of the Register of Damage for Russia’s Aggression in Ukraine. The United States appreciates the opportunity to participate in negotiations and join the Council’s various conventions.

As we commemorate the 75th anniversary of this important institution, the United States reaffirms our commitment to remaining a steadfast partner in promoting democratic values, human rights, and the rule of law.
