On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I offer congratulations to the people of the Marshall Islands on their 39th Constitution Day, May 1.

With our shared interests in the Indo-Pacific and our strong, enduring partnership, the United States and the Marshall Islands have achieved significant progress advancing common goals in the region and beyond. We look forward to continuing our close cooperation both bilaterally and at the United Nations on issues such as promoting human rights, increasing education and health levels, bolstering maritime and regional security, and countering transnational crime.

Our close partnership is notably about our two governments working together, it is also about our two peoples looking to the future together. We honor those Marshallese men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces, ensuring a safe, secure, and free world for all.

Please accept my warmest wishes on this special day.
