On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I extend my congratulations to the people of Cambodia on the 66th anniversary of your independence on November 9.

In recognition of the values that Cambodians and Americans share, we hope this day will focus on national reconciliation; peaceful dialogue; and democratic, economic, and social development. We celebrate U.S.-Cambodian cooperation in building a more prosperous, democratic, and independent Cambodia.

The United States congratulates you on Cambodia’s National Day and conveys our best wishes to the Cambodian people.
