On behalf of the United States of America and the American people, I wish to congratulate the people of Singapore on the occasion of your National Day.
The United States and Singapore enjoy a long friendship built upon our shared interests and commitment for a prosperous, secure, and collaborative future. Our enduring strategic partnership is strengthened by our exceptional defense and security ties, deep trade relations, and thriving connections between our peoples. We look forward to many more years of friendship and cooperation as we continue to set the foundation for a free, open, connected, and resilient Indo-Pacific region.
I wish the people of Singapore a joyous and prosperous year as you celebrate your 58th National Day.
