On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send my warmest congratulations to newly elected President Tommy Remengesau, Jr. and to the people of Palau.

The United States applauds Palau for its unyielding commitment to good governance, equality, and individual liberty. Our longstanding friendship reflects our shared faith in these core values. Together, we will continue to combat climate change, empower women, promote opportunities for young people and strengthen security around the world. We are grateful for the extraordinary heroism Palauan citizens have displayed through their continued voluntary service in the United States Armed forces.

Congratulations to President Remengesau, Jr. and to the people of Palau. We look forward to continuing our work toward peace, progress, and prosperity.
