President Obama re-election

"I think he's a very successful US president and I look forward to working with him in the future."

Prime Minister David Cameron has given his reaction to Barack Obama’s victory in the US Presidential election.

The Prime Minister spoke during his visit to Jordan:

I would like to congratulate Barack Obama on his re-election.

I have really enjoyed working with him over the last few years and I look forward to working with him again over the next four years.

There are so many things that we need to do: we need to kick start the world economy and I want to see an EU-US trade deal.

Right here in Jordan I am hearing appalling stories about what has happened inside Syria so one of the first things I want to talk to Barack about is how we must do more to try and solve this crisis.

Above all, congratulations to Barack. I’ve enjoyed working with him, I think he’s a very successful US president and I look forward to working with him in the future.
