On behalf of the United States of America, I congratulate the Djiboutian people on the 46th anniversary of your nation’s independence.

The United States and Djibouti have enjoyed a strong partnership for many decades. We look forward to deepening our bonds through greater cooperation on common priorities including economic development, peace and security, and defending the rules-based international order.

The United States deeply appreciates Djibouti’s contributions to saving lives and securing lasting and sustainable peace in response to conflicts and crises in the region.
