On behalf of President Trump and the American people, I extend my best wishes to the people of Namibia as you celebrate the anniversary of your independence on March 21.

Since independence, Namibia has stood out for its strong democratic traditions, its success in combatting HIV/AIDS, and its model wildlife conservation. The United States is proud to partner with you in these efforts.

The United States looks forward to building upon strong friendship to achieve our common goals and wish Namibia continued success in the coming year.
