Hon. Clifford Andre expressed his gratitude for Ambassador Jardine’s visit, highlighting the United States’ consistent support in providing strategic advice, guidance, and valuable training opportunities. The United States has remained a pivotal partner in Seychelles’ journey towards enhancing its defense and security capabilities, and this visit further solidified the bond of cooperation between the two nations.
The meeting concluded on a positive note, with both parties reiterating their commitment to enhancing cooperation and interaction between the United States and Seychelles. The discussions held during this diplomatic exchange are expected to pave the way for mutually beneficial endeavors, strengthening the partnership and friendship that exists between these two nations.
