On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of the Kingdom of Cambodia as you celebrate the Khmer New Year.

For years, the United States and Cambodia have worked together to create a brighter future for both our people by increasing trade, strengthening civil society, and improving health. Today, we are finding new ways to broaden our relationship and address challenges - from promoting regional security and democracy to expanding global health and development.

As you gather with family, friends and neighbors to honor Cambodia's rich traditions and culture, know that the United States stands with you as a partner and friend. Congratulations and best wishes for a peaceful, prosperous, and happy New Year.
