November 10, 2013


On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I send best wishes to all Angolans as you celebrate 38 years of independence on November 11.

The United States celebrates your independence and all that Angolans have achieved after decades of war. We are optimistic about the opportunities for economic growth and trade between our countries, and we look forward to working together to strengthen Angola’s democratic institutions, promote economic prosperity, combat HIV/AIDS and malaria, and reinforce peace and security.

As you celebrate this special day from Lubango to Lucapa, I wish all people of Angola peace and prosperity in the coming years.
