By Horace Palacio: As Belizeans prepare to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of our nation’s independence, U.S. Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken issued an official press statement congratulating the people of Belize and emphasizing the robust partnership between the two countries.

“On behalf of the United States of America, I congratulate the people of Belize on the 42nd anniversary of your Independence Day,” Blinken said in the statement released on September 20, 2023.

The Secretary of State highlighted that the enduring relationship between the United States and Belize is founded on shared commitments to democratic principles and respect for human rights. He expressed gratitude for Belize’s role in “supporting humane migration management through the Los Angeles Declaration on Migration and Protection” and commended the nation’s efforts to promote citizen security, tackle climate change, and prevent transnational crime.

Blinken reassured that the United States will continue to support Belize in its quest for a secure and prosperous future. “The United States will continue to support Belize as it creates the conditions for a more secure and prosperous future for its citizens,” he stated, confirming the commitment of the U.S. government to strengthening the ties that bind the two nations.

The statement concluded with a heartfelt wish for a joyful 42nd Independence Day for Belizeans, both in the country and scattered globally. “In the spirit of this partnership, the people of the United States wish a very happy 42nd Independence Day to Belizeans everywhere,” Blinken added.

As Belize marks another year of independence, the statement serves as a reminder of the importance of international partnerships in addressing common challenges and opportunities. This comes at a time when collaboration on issues such as climate change, migration, and security is more crucial than ever.

For Belizeans at home and abroad, the congratulatory message from one of the country’s key international partners underscores the significance of the day and offers a glimpse into the cooperative future that lies ahead.
