US Embassy Belgrade, Serbia | June 30, 2011
Ambassador Mary Warlick: "This year we celebrate a milestone, 130 years of diplomatic relations between our two countries. In 1878, within days of Serbia gaining independence at the Congress of Berlin, the U.S. Ambassador to Vienna recommended to Washington that the United States establish formal relations with the Principality of Serbia. Although our economic relationship at the time was limited, the United States wanted to extend its support and official recognition to Serbia's hard earned independence. Thus, in Belgrade in October of 1881, Serbian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Finance Čedomilj Mijatović and U.S. diplomat Eugene Schuyler signed a Consular Convention and Treaty of Commerce."

US Mission Pakistan: Islamabad | July 4, 2011
"U.S. Consulate General Lahore celebrated 235th Independence day of the United States of America with great enthusiasm and festivities. Deputy Chief of Mission Richard E. Hoagland from Islamabad also participated in the event. [...] This year’s theme was “Washington State” since our current Consul General Carmela Conroy was born there. The party was based on a street market in Washington State called Pike Place Market. The food represented Washington State specialties like apples and onions and were named after Washington State cities, famous locations and companies. Adding to the street market scene and feel, USAID displayed and presented seven projects that are currently underway in Pakistan. "
