Dear Editor,

The following is a unclassified release from the US Department of State:

On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I offer best wishes to the people of Jamaica on the occasion of your 52nd anniversary of Independence.

The United States and Jamaica share an important and thriving partnership through our mutual commitment to strong democratic governance.

Our collaboration in the areas of climate change, health, security, and trade continues to benefit both our nations and the Caribbean region.

We applaud your recent efforts to pass the Disabilities Act, which ensures equal rights for people with physical, mental, and intellectual disabilities.

Our mutual efforts through the Climate Adaptation Plan, the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI), and the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief have made a lasting mark on the region.

As you mark this day across the island, the United States remains committed to strengthening our partnership and looks forward to an enduring friendship.

John Kerry

US Secretary of State
