Statement by Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo on Honduras’ Independence Day

On behalf of the Government of the United States and the American people, I congratulate the people of Honduras on your 199th Independence Day.

The United States and Honduras enjoy a relationship grounded in shared values, commerce, culture, and familial ties. We will continue to support Honduras in strengthening its institutions, promoting economic growth, and fighting corruption and transnational crime. I am confident the bonds of friendship between our two nations will continue to grow as we confront shared challenges and work together to promote prosperity, security, and freedom across the region.
