"On behalf of the people of the United States, I wish all Muslims around the world a happy and blessed Ramadan.

"Along with dozens of our Embassies, I will host an Eid Celebration in Washington for Muslims and non-Muslims to join together and reflect on our common values, faith and the gifts of the past year.

"During this month of peace and humility, I wish the 1.6 billion Muslims around the world Ramadan Kareem."
