On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the citizens of the Republic of the Marshall Islands on the anniversary of your nation’s independence.

Our two countries share a long history of cooperation, mutual respect, and friendship. We look forward to continuing to work together on advancing human rights, strengthening economic development, enhancing regional security, mitigating environmental threats, and improving health and education services for all Marshallese citizens. We are grateful for the dedication and voluntary sacrifice of Marshallese serving in the U.S. Armed Forces as we work together promoting security and stability around the world.

Congratulations and warmest wishes for a year of progress, prosperity, and peace.
