On behalf of the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines as they celebrate 30 years as an independent nation. Our two countries are united by our shared commitment to democracy and human rights and strong economic and cultural ties. We are working as partners to enhance the security and prosperity of the Caribbean region and build a brighter future for all our people.

As Vincentians gather to honor their history and enjoy their Independence Day parade, let me reaffirm the commitment of the United States to work together to deepen and strengthen our partnership.
