On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of the Republic of Palau on your Independence Day this October 1.

On this occasion, we reaffirm the close and cooperative relationship enshrined in our Compact of Free Association, and look ahead to continuing our work together on issues of mutual interest, from fostering economic growth and ensuring regional security, to combating climate change and protecting the environment.

As we join in celebrating your independence and the bonds of friendship between our nations, I offer my warmest wishes for a peaceful and prosperous year to come.
