01:26-02:16 (EN) These soldiers and the aircraft are clear demonstration of US commitments and the US enduring pledge to the defense and the security of Latvia. In addition, this deployment demonstrates the broader commitment to the transatlantic alliance and to NATO article 5. Over the past years the special relationship between our countries - the US and Latvia - are deepened and they will continue to grow. And I think, this is another demonstration of our friendship with a close NATO ally. This year thousands of US soldiers will rotate through Latvia to participate in exercises and training and they will continue to build the close ties with their Latvian confreres.
