Malaysia National Day

On behalf of the government of the United States of America, I congratulate the people of Malaysia as you celebrate your National Day on August 31.

Malaysia embodies many of the values that have enabled the Indo-Pacific to become one of the greatest engines of the growing global economy. Those democratic values underpin the strong relationship we have built together over more than six decades. I was honored to visit Kuala Lumpur recently to meet with Prime Minister Mahathir and to discuss how we can continue to promote prosperity and security in the region.

I send my best wishes to all Malaysians for another year filled with peace, success, and happiness.
