July 5, 2011
On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Algeria on your country’s National Day this July 5. The United States and Algeria work closely together on key regional and international issues and we have a long history of partnering to promote security and stability in the Middle East and North Africa. Recently, the Algerian Government initiated comprehensive reforms to address the democratic and economic aspirations of the Algerian people. This is an important moment for Algeria’s future. The United States is committed to this relationship. As you work to improve democratic institutions and expand opportunity, know that the United States is your partner and friend as we work together for a brighter future.
