On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Burkina Faso on your 52nd anniversary of independence this December 11.

Our two countries share a commitment to promoting democracy, economic development and regional stability. The United States is dedicated to supporting Burkina Faso’s efforts to expand economic opportunities, strengthen democratic institutions and maintain regional security. We are working together to boost agricultural productivity, improve girls’ access to education, strengthen maternal and child health services and increase food security. We look forward to building upon the strong bond between our two countries to support peace and prosperity for all the people of Burkina Faso.

As you celebrate your National Day with family and friends, know that the United States is your partner. We are committed to this relationship for a brighter future for all Burkinabe.
