Dear Mr. President,
On behalf of the Government and the people of Somalia, I extend my cordial congratulations to the nation and the great people of America on this special day of independence.
The United States of America is a valuable supporter and ally of Somalia in many areas of mutual benefit. We are grateful for this enduring demonstration of solidarity.
Thanks to an engaged, active and productive Somali-American Diaspora community, our two nations have forged strong people to people relations which benefits our two sides.
