Assalam anlayikum.

Ce fut un honneur de représenter les États-Unis d’Amérique auprès de Union des Comores ces deux dernières années et demie.  J’ai vécu une expérience remarquable sur le plan professionnel, en travaillant avec nos partenaires du gouvernement des Comores, de la société civile et du secteur privé sur des questions essentielles pour nous tous.  En même temps, j’ai eu l’occasion de visiter toutes vos magnifiques îles et de rencontrer des personnes incroyables de toute la nation.
