On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I congratulate the people of Djibouti on the anniversary of your independence on June 27.

Djibouti is a lynchpin of security and stability in the Horn of Africa. You are a first responder in times of need, and have shown great leadership by contributing troops to AMISOM in Somalia and providing generous support to refugees fleeing violence in Yemen.

The United States values our close collaboration on regional development, democracy, and humanitarian assistance. Our annual Binational Forum, most recently hosted by Djibouti in February 2016, is the hallmark of our strong relationship. I offer my best wishes as you celebrate 39 years of independence, and look forward to advancing our partnership in the year to come.
