Prime Minister David Cameron congratulates Barack Obama on his re-election
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.”
