On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I send my best wishes to the people and the Government of Djibouti on your National Day.
Djibouti is an anchor of peace and security in the Horn of Africa. As our partnership deepens, I look forward to working together on energy, workforce development, education, healthcare, and security cooperation in the years to come. A secure, stable, and prosperous Djibouti is essential to the well-being of the entire region.
As you celebrate your independence, the government and people of the United States stand beside you.
