"On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of your country as you celebrate your Independence Day on January 4," said Clinton in a written statement. "Together, our two countries have been working on a number of important issues, and we are pleased with the steady process of reform. 2012 saw a number of historic steps forward in the development of our bilateral relationship, including the reestablishment of normal diplomatic relations, and President Obama and I both enjoyed our visit in November of last year. We look forward to continuing to deepen our partnership and cooperation in the years to come. In the spirit of our long lasting friendship, I wish your country continued prosperity and a joyful Independence Day celebration."

Clinton hasn't talked about her recent illness that's put her out of work for almost the last three works. Nor has she talked about what role she might have taken to respond to the terror attack against Americans in Benghazi, Libya. 

But she has released a statement on "Haiti's Independence Day," and now she's released one on "Burma's Independence Day."
