US Secretary Pompeo greets Muslims on Eid-ul-Fitr

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has extended best wishes to their Muslim friends and partners celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr.


"This holiday marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting, charity, compassion, and reflection," Pompeo said in a message.


The US Secretary of State said Eid-ul-Fitr reminds all in the United States and abroad, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, to maintain the spirit and lessons of Ramadan throughout the year: to promote peace, to be of service to those who are suffering and displaced, to respect diversity, and to empathize with everyone around.


"The United States is proud of the strong relationships we have built with Muslim nations and communities around the world. We are also proud of the contributions of the 3.4 million American Muslims who deeply enrich our social fabric on a daily basis. These contributions reflect the United States’ bedrock principles of religious pluralism and public service," the message reads.


Secretary Pompeo said, "As you mark this special holiday with loved ones, I wish you peace and prosperity in the coming year. Eid Mubarak."
