US President Barrack Obama says America stands with the people of Fiji in their pursuit of a brighter future, in his Fiji Day message.

Obama said he, on behalf of the American people, congratulates the people of Fiji on the 39th anniversary of Fiji's Independence on October 10.

“We enjoy a friendship founded on the mutual commitments of our societies to peace, freedom, the rule of law, and democratic ideals,” he said.

“It is through our shared commitment to these ideals that the friendship between our countries has developed so strongly over the years.”

The note, sent via the US Embassy in Suva, is addressed to “the people of Fiji” and signed “sincerely, Barack Obama”.
