Congresswoman Johnson’s Statement on Pakistani Independence Day
Dallas, TX – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson today released the following statement in celebration of Pakistani Independence Day 2018:
“It is a particular joy to wish my friends in the Pakistani-American community a happy Pakistani Independence Day. As Pakistan has formed an important strategic relationship with the United States, Americans of Pakistani origin have been great contributors to the cultural, social and economic growth of our nation. The celebrations on this Independence Day are of special significance as they precede the inauguration of a new government, and I express my optimism that, under the guidance of the new leadership in Pakistan, we can continue to build on the progress that our existing relationship has helped us achieve. I am hopeful that this Independence Day marks a renewed commitment to common progress for our two countries. I am delighted to send my best wishes to all Pakistanis and Pakistani-Americans celebrating Pakistan’s Independence Day.
