The United Republic of Tanzania’s Union Day

Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary of State

On behalf of the United States of America, I would like to extend my congratulations to the Tanzanian people in recognition of the 56th anniversary of the creation of the United Republic of Tanzania.

The United States welcomes President Magufuli’s commitment to hold free and fair elections later this year. We stand ready to partner with the Tanzanian people as you chart your way towards a more prosperous and democratic society.

I wish all Tanzanians peace and prosperity in the year to come.
