On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Jordan as you celebrate your 66th Independence Day this May 25th.
The United States deeply values our long history of cooperation and friendship with Jordan. We appreciate the special leadership role that Jordan plays in advancing peace and moderation in the region. We share the mutual goals of a comprehensive, just, and lasting peace in the Middle East and an end to violent extremism that threatens the security of Jordan, the region, and the entire globe. And we encourage Jordanian efforts to implement reforms that will secure a better future for the Jordanian people.
As you celebrate this anniversary of Jordan’s independence, know that the United States is a steadfast partner and friend. Congratulations and best wishes for peace and prosperity in the years to come.
