On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Palau on the 19th anniversary of your independence on October 1.

As you celebrate this day, the United States looks back with you in pride on our history of friendly and productive relations. We also look forward to continued partnership on issues such as the protection of fragile marine habitats, sustainable economic development, and the fulfillment of human rights.

The United States is committed to peace and prosperity for Palau and the Pacific Region, and we join you in the spirit of friendship and cooperation. I send all the people of Palau my best wishes for a year of peace, progress, and prosperity.
