On June 14, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo extended his best wishes to our Muslim friends and partners celebrating Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan. "Eid al-Fitr reminds all of us 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 us," Secretary Pompeo said.
On behalf of the @StateDept, I extend my best wishes to our Muslim friends and partners celebrating Eid al-Fitr. As you mark this special holiday with loved ones, I wish you peace and prosperity in the coming year. #EidMubarak— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) June 15, 2018
