Angolan National Day

Antony J. Blinken, Secretary of State

On behalf of the United States of America, I wish the people of Angola a heartfelt congratulations on the 48th anniversary of your independence.

I am appreciative of the ways that the United States and Angola have expanded our partnership, especially in the past year.  From the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, to increased security cooperation, to the ways that U.S. companies are finding success in Angola, the U.S.-Angola relationship is strong and growing.  We look forward to continuing to work with the Angolan people on regional stability, shared prosperity, and combatting corruption.

I applaud our shared commitment to peace, security, and the principles of the UN charter, and I wish the best for the people of Angola as you celebrate this day.
