Uganda National Day

On behalf of the United States, I wish to congratulate the people of Uganda on the 56th anniversary of your independence. Uganda has long been an important partner of the United States. We have worked together for years to increase global peace and security, combat the spread of infectious diseases, and grow our economies to promote the prosperity of our people.

We appreciate this spirit of partnership and look forward to building upon our strong ties in strengthening democratic institutions and basic freedoms, support of economic development, and other issues of mutual interest.
