France is sending the Statue of Liberty to the United States. However, this is not the same as the previous 151 feet statue but a replica of the Statue of Liberty.
We all know the world-famous Statue of Liberty. It is located on a small island in New York, now known as Liberty Island. It was presented to the United States by France as a token of friendship on the 100th anniversary of American independence. However, France recently announced that it would send a replica Statue to the United States. The French museum will provide a replica of the statue for the next ten years as a loan from the United States.
The small Statue of Liberty has already begun its journey to the United States. It is known that it will arrive on July 4, the Independence Day of the United States. It will first be displayed on Ellis Island and then moved to Washington DC. The little one is just 9.3 feet and was built in 1878. It was designed by the famous French architect Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi who also designed the original Statue of Liberty.
Historically, the alliance between France and the United States is well-known. As the two countries became closer on the Syria issue at the beginning of the last decade, the relation became a little bit worse in the Trump administration. In the context of the formation of the European army force, French President Emmanuel Macron informed the United States that France was an ally of America but not a slave.
