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

History[edit]

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).

According to the 2012 U.S. Global Leadership Report, 42% of Luxembourgers approve of U.S. leadership, with 33% disapproving and 25% uncertain.[1]
