Luxembourg-United States relations

Luxembourg–United States relations

Luxembourg-United States relations are bilateral relations between Luxembourg and the United States.

History

The United States, fighting on the Allied side, contributed to Luxembourg's liberation in World War I and World War II. More than 5,000 American soldiers, including U.S. Army General George S. Patton, are buried at the Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial near the capital of Luxembourg City, and there are monuments in many towns to American liberators. The strong U.S.-Luxembourg relationship is expressed both bilaterally and through common membership in NATO, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).

  • Ambassador--Ann Wagner
  • Deputy Chief of Mission--Steven Kraft

  • Acting Public Affairs Officer--Thomas Boughter
  • Regional Security Officer--Jeffrey Rusinek
