On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of the Central African Republic as you celebrate your National Day this December 1.

The partnership between the United States and the Central African Republic remains strong. Our countries share a vision of a more stable Central African Republic that enjoys greater economic growth, contributes to regional stability, and is a reliable partner on issues of mutual importance. We are pleased to work together through the United Nations and other international bodies and to support you as you combat the Lord’s Resistance Army. We also support your efforts to develop institutions that will improve transparency, strengthen the rule of law, and promote unity among Central Africans.

I wish all the people of the Central African Republic a safe and joyous National Day celebration and look forward to greater peace and prosperity for both of our nations.
