Madagascar National Day

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

On behalf of President Obama and the American people I offer my heartfelt congratulations to the government and people of Madagascar as you celebrate your independence on June 26.

This year's anniversary carries special significance as the first since Madagascar's return to democratic rule.

We encourage the newly elected government to show its commitment to the Malagasy people by governing with transparency and respect for human rights and the rule of law. In times of crisis, we worked with you to advance the health and well-being of all your citizens. Now, in times of hope and opportunity, we look forward to deepening our partnership for peace and shared prosperity.

The United States recognizes that Madagascar's strength and resilience lie in its people. We hope that this day will mark the start of a new and productive chapter in your history.
