On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I send best wishes to the people of Zimbabwe as you mark 36 years of independence on April 18.

The United States upholds the same vision for Zimbabwe as its people—a Zimbabwe that is democratic, prosperous, and provides for its people. Over the coming year, we will continue to stand with Zimbabweans in pursuit of our shared goals.
