On behalf of President Trump and the American people, I would like to congratulate the people of the Republic of Nauru as you celebrate the 49th anniversary of your nation's independence this January 31.
The Republic of Nauru and the United States have enjoyed enduring friendship and valuable cooperation on a variety of issues of regional and global concern, from improving access to health and education to promoting sustainable fisheries in the Pacific Ocean. The United States looks forward to deepening our partnership with Nauru in the coming months and years.
We wish all of the people of Nauru a joyous celebration and continued peace and prosperity.
