On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Honduras as you celebrate the 194th anniversary of your independence.

In the last year, the United States and Honduras have worked in close partnership on addressing the key priorities outlined in the Alliance for Prosperity. We share a commitment to strengthen security, improve governance, and boost economic growth. Our countries share a vision where we can build capacity in law enforcement and judicial institutions, deepen respect for human rights, and fight against corruption and impunity. Working together, we can further these goals while strengthening the bond between our two nations.

I wish all Hondurans peace and prosperity in the year ahead.
