On the Occasion of the Republic of Namibia’s National Day


WASHINGTON, March 20, 2015/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Press Statement

March 20, 2015


On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I congratulate the citizens of Namibia as they celebrate 25 years of independence on March 21.

Namibia’s pursuit of democratic principles and economic prosperity stands as an example to the region. As a friend and partner, the United States is proud of the work our two countries are doing to fight HIV/AIDS, promote education, and ensure environmental conservation. We will continue to seek new ways of partnering with Namibia to create peace and prosperity.

As you celebrate the Silver Jubilee of your independence, I offer warmest wishes to all Namibians in the year ahead.



US Department of State
