On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I offer my warmest wishes for a joyous New Year to Nepalis all around the world.

Today is an opportunity to reflect on the progress Nepal has made on its democratic journey and to reaffirm national unity and goodwill.

We look forward to strengthening the partnership between our governments and the friendship between our people as Nepal continues on the path to peace and prosperity in the New Year.

Naya Barshako Shubha-Kamana!
