July 30, 2012

On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Morocco as you celebrate your national day this July 30.

This year, we mark 225 years since our two nations ratified a treaty of peace and friendship – the longest unbroken treaty in United States history. Together, we are working to expand trade, increase cultural and educational exchanges, and strengthen security in the region. This relationship will continue to strengthen as we work toward our common goals.

Congratulations on this special day and best wishes for a year of peace and prosperity.
