SANA’A – On behalf of the American people and the Embassy of the United States in Yemen, I convey my warmest wishes to the people of Yemen for a Happy Eid al-Fitr.
As Muslims around the world celebrate the Eid marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, we remember Islam’s message of compassion, generosity, and faith – the values Islam shares with other religions. We also recognize that in Yemen today, the people will celebrate the Eid during a difficult time, marked by many hardships in daily life. The United States will stand by the people of Yemen as they go through this difficult period and looks forward to helping Yemen achieve the peaceful, prosperous, and democratic future that the people deserve.
I wish you all a peaceful and blessed Eid, and health and happiness for the coming year. Eid Mubarak!
