On behalf of the Government of the United States and the American people, I congratulate the people of Tajikistan as you celebrate the 28th anniversary of your independence on September 9th.
Over the past 28 years, Tajikistan has been an important partner to the United States in the areas of regional security and the advancement of political and economic development of the region. Our partnership has benefited our two nations and the Central Asian region as a whole, and we are confident that our friendship will continue to deepen over the coming years.
