San Marino–United States relations
The United States and San Marino enjoy friendly diplomatic relations. San Marino proposed a republican alliance with the United States during the American Civil War. In 1906, the countries signed an extradition treaty. During World War I, the United States intervened on San Marino's behalf and attempted to free San Marinese prisoners of war held in Austria-Hungary. However, their pleas were denied. San Marino consistently supports U.S. foreign policy positions, as well as U.S. candidates to international organizations. The two countries are on excellent terms. In September 2006 President George W. Bush appointed Ambassador to Italy Ronald P. Spogli to serve concurrently as Ambassador to San Marino. Ambassador Spogli is the first U.S. Ambassador to San Marino in the country’s history. For consular purposes, the republic is within the jurisdiction of the Florence consular district. Consulate officials regularly visit San Marino to carry out diplomatic demarches, represent U.S. interests, and administer consular services. As of September 2013[update], John R. Phillips is the U.S. ambassador to San Marino (and Italy). In July 2007, Ambassador Paolo Rondelli became San Marino’s first ambassador to the U.S.
