Press Statement

Washington, DC
August 7, 2018

On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I congratulate the people of Singapore as you celebrate your National Day on August 9.

Singapore is a longstanding valued partner, and friend in the Indo-Pacific Region. For more than half a century, the United States and Singapore have enjoyed a close economic and security relationship based on a shared vision of stability, prosperity, and the rule of law. Singapore’s support and leadership in hosting the historic June 12 U.S.-DPRK Summit represents a commitment to our shared values. We look forward to further strengthening this partnership to achieve mutual goals and cooperate on regional challenges in the region.

Congratulations on your 53rd anniversary and best wishes for a year filled with peace, success, and happiness.
