The United States congratulates Prime Minister Motsoahae Thomas Thabane on his inauguration. We look forward to working with the Prime Minister and all members of parliament to continue strengthening our longstanding partnership. These successful elections demonstrate a commitment to multiparty democracy and represent a historic moment for the people of Lesotho as the country forms its first coalition government.

I also want to thank Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili for his contributions to Lesotho’s democratic development and for his acceptance of the will of the Basotho people. Today is a proud moment for the Kingdom of Lesotho.
