On behalf of the United States, I would like to extend my warm congratulations to the people of The Bahamas as they celebrate their thirty-sixth anniversary of independence. I hope this summer’s Junkanoo festivities were worthy of the occasion, and I congratulate the participants of this year’s competition.

We appreciate the strong partnership we enjoy with The Bahamas in areas ranging from law enforcement cooperation to energy security to environmental protection. I hope our shared commitment to democracy and peace continues to join our nations together in friendship.
