On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I congratulate the people of Tuvalu on their Independence Day.

The U.S.-Tuvalu bilateral relationship is strong and growing. Together, we are working on matters of regional and global importance, such as promoting health and education in the Pacific. Our cooperation to ensure full implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions and combat transnational crime is contributing to a safe and secure Indo-Pacific region. I look forward to building upon our relationship through these and other joint efforts in the years to come.

Once again, congratulations on this special occasion.
