The President of the United States of America, George W. Bush, sent the following message to His Majesty King Sihamoni on the Occasion of the 54th Anniversary of the Independence of the Kingdom of Cambodia:
On behalf of the American people, I wish to congratulate you and the people of the Kingdom of Cambodia on the occasion of your Independence Day on November 9. I look forward to the year ahead as our two nations continue to identify opportunities to strengthen our bilateral ties, as well as to work together on mutual areas of interest. This past year has been marked by significant progress in our relations, with the arrival of the first U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers and a warmly welcomed U.S. Navy humanitarian ship visit. We value your commitment to further democratic development.
I wish you and the Cambodian people peace, prosperity, and good wishes.
George W. Bush
