On behalf of the government of the United States and the American people, I offer my best wishes to the people of Nepal on your Constitution Day on September 20.

The United States and Nepal have enjoyed more than seven decades of friendship and close ties between our peoples.  The United States is committed to supporting Nepal’s continued development as a stable, prosperous, and sovereign nation.

On this special occasion, I congratulate all Nepalis as you celebrate this important holiday.
