Commemorating July 4th

July 4, 2013 § Leave a comment

Every year on July 4th, I have the pleasure of joining millions of Americans in celebration of their country’s independence day. After nearly 240 years, the United States remains a shining example of the endurance of progressive values that the entire world can follow.

The friendship between Bahrain and the United States began over a hundred years ago when American missionaries came to Bahrain and established the American Mission Hospital and founded the first church in the Arabian Gulf. Today, we are proud to host the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet and to serve as the United State’s closest commercial, political, and military ally in the Arabian Gulf.

On behalf of all Bahrainis, I would like to congratulate the United States and the American people on this important occasion. At a time of great uncertainty around the world, we are proud to stand side by side in service of our common interests and ideals.
