"On behalf of President (Barack) Obama and the American people, I send best wishes to the people of Zimbabwe as you celebrate 34 years of independence on April 18," John Kerry Secretary of State, stated from Washington.

He added: "The United States remains committed to the people of Zimbabwe. We will continue to support all Zimbabweans as you seek a more democratic, prosperous, and healthy future."

He said his country was looking forward to strengthening its partnership with the Zimbabwean people to achieve the common goals of peace, security and prosperity.

The US has been calling for adherence to democratic rule and slapped Zimbabwe with restrictive measures over poor governance and human rights abuses in the early 2000s.
