Statement from the President on the Recovery of Danny Burch from Yemen

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

It is my honor today to announce that Danny Burch, a United States citizen who has been held hostage in Yemen for 18 months, has been recovered and reunited with his wife and children. I appreciate the support of the United Arab Emirates in bringing Danny home. Danny's recovery reflects the best of what the United States and its partners can accomplish.

We work every day to bring Americans home. We maintain constant and intensive diplomatic, intelligence, and law enforcement cooperation within the United States Government and with our foreign partners. Recovering American hostages is a priority of my Administration, and with Danny's release, we have now secured freedom for 20 American captives since my election victory. We will not rest as we continue our work to bring the remaining American hostages back home.

Today, we join Danny and his family in celebrating his return.
