On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I would like to extend our congratulations to the people of the Republic of Nauru for the 51 years of your nation’s independence.

The United States values the partnership and collaboration that our countries have enjoyed. Nauru’s success in hosting of the Pacific Islands Forum last year demonstrates how your leadership in the Pacific region can advance a free and open Indo-Pacific. We look forward to further cooperation as you continue your chairmanship of this important regional organization.

Warmest congratulations and best wishes for peace and prosperity in the year to come.
