May 17, Colombo: United States Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo sends greetings to everyone celebrating Vesak Day tomorrow.

"On behalf of the people of the United States of America, I send wishes of peace and joy to everyone celebrating Vesak Day on May 18.

As Buddhist communities unite across the globe to celebrate the founder of Buddhism, Siddhartha Gautama, we honor the values of compassion, charity, and peace.

The Buddhist community in the United States contributes to the strength of our country and our people, and Buddhism’s contributions to the world over more than two thousand years have enriched our culture and our history.
