Clinton Congratulates Ecuador on 201st Anniversary
Ecuador's Independence Day

By Hillary Rodham Clinton
U.S. Secretary of State

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Ecuador on the 201st anniversary of your country’s call for independence on August 10.

On my recent visit to your historic capital, I was honored to experience the hospitality and warmth of the Ecuadorian people first hand. Cooperation between Ecuador and the United States on issues of mutual concern – from combating narco-trafficking to reducing poverty – has strengthened our partnership and reaffirmed the underlying values that unite our two countries.

These ties are further enhanced by the exchange of people and ideas through cultural initiatives. The United States stands ready to build on this relationship and seize the opportunity to consolidate our democratic values, cooperate to address regional and global challenges, and use our interdependence to enhance prosperity and expand opportunity throughout the hemisphere.

I wish all Ecuadorians a safe and happy celebration on the anniversary of your "first cry of independence.” We look forward to working together as partners in creating more democratic and more inclusive societies that will provide brighter futures for citizens throughout the Americas.
