Our nations cooperate bilaterally, as well as through the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative, the Partnership Framework for HIV and AIDS, the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas, the Caribbean Youth Empowerment Program and other multilateral institutions. The United States is committed to strengthening the ties of friendship between our countries as we face the challenges of our region together.

The people of Grenada have a long and proud history. As you celebrate your independence, know that the United States stands with you and we look forward to continuing to work together to build a brighter future for all our people.
