Secretary of State Pompeo’s Statement on Belize’s Independence Day

On behalf of the government and people of the United States of America, I extend my warmest congratulations to the people of Belize on the 38th anniversary of your independence, September 21.

There is much to celebrate this year, as Belize held a historic National Referendum and strengthened disaster resiliency with partner nations across the Caribbean and Central America.  The U.S.-Belize relationship is grounded in our joint efforts to promote regional economic prosperity and citizen security, and in our robust people-to-people ties.

The United States wishes the people of Belize a happy Independence Day.
