On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I offer warm congratulations to the people of the Republic of Nauru on the 46th anniversary of your Independence on January 31.

The United States and Nauru work together on a broad range of issues, including strengthening regional security, protecting our natural resources, and addressing the impacts of climate change.

I look forward to forging even closer ties as we build a more secure, prosperous, and sustainable world for future generations.

The United States stands with you in the spirit of our shared values and continuing cooperation.
