Independance day message from President Biden to President Denis Sassou Nguesso

His Excellency
Mr Denis Sassou N’Guesso
President of the Republic of Congo
Brazzaville, Republic of Congo


Dear Mr. President


On behalf of the people of the United States, I send our best wishes to you and the people of the Republic of the Congo as you celebrate the 63rd anniversary of your country’s independence.


On this occasion, we reaffirm our commitment to working to promote regional stability, global health, maritime security, and climate change. The Congo Basin Forest and its peatlands are critical to the future of our planet, and the United States remains committed to working together with the Republic of the Congo to preserve this critical ecosystem.


In the year ahead, I look forward deepening the cooperation between our nations, and the friendship between our people, even further. I wish you a peaceful and joyful national holiday.




Joseph R. Biden Jr.
