Message from President Obama on Independence Day

Dear Mr. President:

Please accept my best wishes to you and the people of Honduras as you celebrate the 194th anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Honduras on September 15.

In the last year, the United States and Honduras have worked in close partnership to address key regional priorities of the Alliance for Prosperity.  We look forward to continuing and expanding this work with you to improve security, protect human rights, and support economic opportunities for all Hondurans.  Honduras is a leader in efforts to provide a more accountable government that incorporates civil society into a meaningful dialogue about its future.

Again, please accept my sincere congratulations as you commemorate this Independence Day.


Barack Obama
