On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Cote d’Ivoire as you celebrate your Independence this August 7.

The United States and Cote d’Ivoire share a strong friendship and longstanding partnership. In my visit to Abidjan in January, I witnessed firsthand your efforts to work towards national reconciliation, good governance, and economic recovery. The United States is committed to support your government’s continued efforts to improve the lives and future of the Ivoirian people through democratic rule and transparent and accountable institutions.

As you celebrate this special day with family, friends and loved ones, know that the United States stands with you and we look forward to even greater cooperation in the years ahead.
