Aug. 6, 2014:  News Americas Now salutes the nations of Jamaica and Bolivia which both celebrate their independence anniversaries today, August 6th by spotlighting on the Hollywood actors and actresses who have roots in these nations.

U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, on Tuesday extended congrats to both nations  on behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States.

To Jamaica, Kerry said: “The United States and Jamaica share an important and thriving partnership through our mutual commitment to strong democratic governance. Our collaboration in the areas of climate change, health, security, and trade continues to benefit both our nations and the Caribbean region.We applaud your recent efforts to pass the Disabilities Act, which ensures equal rights for people with physical, mental, and intellectual disabilities.Our mutual efforts through the Climate Adaptation Plan, the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI), and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief have made a lasting mark on the region.As you mark this day across the island, the United States remains committed to strengthening our partnership and looks forward to an enduring friendship.”

To Bolivia, the U.S. Secretary of State said: “Bolivia is rich in natural beauty and ancient culture – from Illimani’s high peak, to the historic Ciudad Blanca of Sucre, to the pristine Lake Titicaca, and the extraordinary salt flats of Uyuni. The Bolivian people possess a special richness of culture and unlimited human capital. The United States and the people of Bolivia share a common interest in building tolerant, inclusive societies that reflect the diversity of our two nations. I wish Bolivians everywhere health and happiness on the anniversary of your independence.”
