Seychelles National Day

 

WASHINGTON, June 29, 2015/African Press Organization (APO)/ Press Statement

John Kerry

Secretary of State

Washington, DC

June 29, 2015

 

On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Seychelles as you celebrate 22 years of independence on June 29.

The United States appreciates your cooperation in promoting maritime security in the Indian Ocean. Your leadership makes the region safer and promotes peace and stability that benefits all of Africa.

I also commend your efforts to develop and maintain a sustainable ocean economy. Conservation will ensure our natural resources endure for years to come, while providing economic opportunities for Seychellois and others who rely on the sea for their livelihoods.

The United States wishes Seychelles continued hope and prosperity as you celebrate your national day. I look forward to our continued cooperation in the year ahead.
