On behalf of the United States of America, I wish to extend my congratulations to the Republic of Nauru as it celebrates the 56th anniversary of its independence.

As proud members of a common Pacific family, the United States and Nauru share a history of democratic values and strong people-to-people ties. We will continue to work together to address the shared challenges facing our two countries, including confronting the climate crisis, advancing economic prosperity, and promoting a free and open Blue Pacific region. As we look ahead to deepening our bilateral relationship over the next year, my best wishes are with the people of Nauru.
