U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken congratulated Muslims on Sunday on the occasion of Eid Al Adha and conveyed his best wishes to the Muslims performing the Hajj.

"In a statement issued by the White House, Blinken said: "On behalf of the United States, I extend warm wishes for a blessed Eid al-Adha to Muslims celebrating here and across the world. For the millions of Muslims who performed the Hajj pilgrimage, we also wish the returning pilgrims a Hajj Mabroor,".

He added, "We know Eid arrives this year at a time when many Muslims are experiencing deep pain. Our thoughts are with those facing repression or the effects of conflict, as well as those experiencing the global surge in hate-fueled violence and other forms of Islamophobia.

"For many who celebrate, Eid al-Adha is a commemoration of faith, sacrifice, and hope restored for a better future. Today, we recognize the leadership of Muslim Americans and the contributions of so many Muslim communities across the globe to building a better world, and we recommit to work for a more peaceful future in which all can enjoy freedom and prosperity. Eid Mubarak," he concluded.
