US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, on behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, has sent her congratulations to Peru on the occasion of the Andean country's 190th anniversary of independence and noted that both countries share democratic values and stand up for human rights.

“Today, our two countries are standing up for democracy and human rights around the world. These enduring values are the foundation of our partnership,” said Clinton in an official statement.

Clinton went on to add that “earlier this year we witnessed Peru’s commitment to democratic ideals as a new president was elected after free and transparent elections.”

“As you celebrate this special day, know that the United States is a friend and partner. Happy Independence Day and best wishes for a year of peace and prosperity,” she added.

Moreover, the US Secretary of State said that this year's centennial of the rediscovery of Machu Picchu -one of the world's treasures –“reminds us of Peru's rich history and heritage as the home of one of the most influential civilizations of the Western Hemisphere.”
