On behalf of the Government of the United States, I congratulate Hondurans on their very special 201st Independence Day.

With the historic inauguration of President Xiomara Castro in January, the U.S.-Honduras relationship entered a productive new phase.  We now collaborate more closely than ever to address our countries’ shared challenges, which include upholding democratic governance, promoting economic prosperity, and ensuring security for all Hondurans.  Successfully addressing these challenges will give Hondurans a brighter future at home.  Steadfastly side-by-side with the Honduran government and people, we also joined together in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The United States donated over five million vaccine doses, including pediatric vaccines, to Honduras through the COVAX mechanism.  We look forward to building a healthy, democratic, secure, and prosperous future together.

The people of the United States wish Hondurans everywhere a very happy Independence Day.
