On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Guinea as you commemorate 55 years of independence on October 2.

The United States recognizes the progress Guinea has made in security sector reform and consolidating its democracy during the past several years.

We value our relationship with the Government of Guinea and its role as a partner in regional peace and stability.

The United States will continue to work closely with the Government of Guinea on common economic development goals, from health and agricultural reform to women’s rights and transparency in the mining sector.

On this special day, we share Guineans’ pride in what they have achieved and look forward to deepening our cooperation in the years to come.
