Press Releases: Malaysia National Day

Press Statement
Rex W. Tillerson
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
August 30, 2017


On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, we offer our best wishes to the government and the people of Malaysia as you celebrate your 60th anniversary of independence on August 31.

The United States and Malaysia enjoy a strong partnership rooted in close bonds between our people, dating to before the establishment of diplomatic relations six decades ago. Our long friendship with the people of Malaysia is emblematic of our enduring commitment to ensuring security and prosperity across the Asia-Pacific, and is why Kuala Lumpur is among the capitals I visited on my first trip to Southeast Asia earlier this month.

Congratulations again on your 60th anniversary.
