The following message was sent to President Irfaan Ali by U.S. President Joe Biden:
Dear Mr. President:
It is my pleasure to send congratulations to the people of Guyana as you celebrate 51 years as a republic on February 23.
Guyana is a strong democracy, and I look forward to strengthening our bilateral relationship based on shared principles of good governance, prosperity, and security. The challenges of COVID-19 affect all of us and make clear that we must advance our partnership to face the global pandemic, together. In the year ahead, I look forward to our teams addressing the issues and security concerns that threaten our shared interests, while building on Guyana’s economic growth and development.
I wish you and all the people of Guyana a joyous and safe Mashramani.
Joseph R. Biden, Jr.
