On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Equatorial Guinea as you celebrate your Independence Day on October 12.

The United States and Equatorial Guinea’s cooperation on maritime security has contributed to freedom of navigation in the Gulf of Guinea.

We also remain committed to continuing our partnership on health and education for all Equatoguinean people.

As you gather with family and friends, I wish all the people of Equatorial Guinea peace and stability in the year to come.
