U.S. Embassy Luxembourg

In 1867, Luxembourg gained full independence from the Netherlands and was guaranteed perpetual neutrality by European powers. The United States established diplomatic relations with Luxembourg in 1903. Luxembourg was occupied by Germany in both World War I and World War II and was liberated by forces that included U.S. troops.

Luxembourg is a member of the European Union (EU). The U.S. economic relationship with the EU is the largest and most complex in the world, and the United States and the EU continue to pursue initiatives to create new opportunities for transatlantic commerce.

Luxembourg and the United States belong to a number of the same international organizations, including the United Nations, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, International Monetary Fund, World Bank, and World Trade Organization. Luxembourg also is an observer to the Organization of American States. Luxembourg served a two-year term on the UN Security Council from 2013-2014.

Today, the U.S. embassy is located in Luxembourg, Luxembourg.
