Addis Ababa, 29 May 2014 (WIC) - John Kerry Secretary of U.S. Department of State said the government and people of the United States wish you a most festive celebration.

“On behalf of the government and the people of the United States, I send my best wishes to the government and people of Ethiopia as you celebrate your national day on May 28”, said Kerry in a statement sent to Ethiopian government.

It was a great pleasure to return to Addis Ababa earlier this month and see first-hand examples of the longstanding partnership between the United States and Ethiopia.

He emphasized, “During a visit to Gandhi Memorial Hospital and a conversation with the doctors, nurses and patients there, I was moved and proud to see results of our joint efforts to fight HIV/AIDS”.

“I was also delighted to celebrate the impressive contributions to society of Ethiopian youth and look forward to welcoming several to the United States to participate in the Young African Leaders Initiative Summit,” he added.

These are just two examples of our support of Ethiopia’s peaceful and prosperous future, Kerry said,  adding that the United States is committed to promoting Ethiopia’s economic growth and development, democratic governance and respect for human rights, and peace and security in the region.
