On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I extend my warmest wishes to the people of the Federated States of Micronesia as you celebrate your 37th Independence Day on November 3.
Since establishing bilateral ties, the Federated States of Micronesia and the United States have enjoyed an enduring friendship and shared vision of a free, open, resilient, and prosperous Pacific Islands region. Through our Compact of Free Association and the recently concluded Compact-related agreement renewals, we have reaffirmed our commitment to achieving a prosperous and secure future for the FSM and the region at large. As we look toward the future, the United States is committed to collaborating and supporting your leadership to safeguard the unique and threatened ecosystems of the Pacific Islands and Ocean.
The United States looks forward to continuing its friendship with the Federated States of Micronesia and sends its congratulations as you celebrate this special day.
