Secretary Pompeo’s Eid al-Adha Greeting

Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo (State Dept.)

SECRETARY POMPEO:  Hi everyone, I’m Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.  Today, I would like to wish all Muslims a blessed Eid Al Adha to mark the end of the Hajj pilgrimage.

This is a time of reflection and prayer, when Muslims around the world come together with friends and family in the spirit of peace and compassion.

During this time, members of the Muslim community also perform acts of charity and sacrifice for those in need, demonstrating the importance of generosity in living out their faith.

These acts of kindness serve as an example to all of us. Once again, I’d like to extend my warmest wishes to our friends, partners, and allies around the world who are celebrating.

On behalf of the State Department, I wish everyone Eid Mubarak.
