Dignitaries react to Obama's victory
It was a wonderful day for Barack Obama yesterday (Wednesday), when he came to know about his victory in the Presidential elections against Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Congratulatory messages flew in from several corners of the world for Obama.

BARACK OBAMA has been re-elected as the President of the United States for the second time running after defeating Mitt Romney in a close race for the White House. Congratulatory messages were addressed to the US President for his achievement, which was hung in balance during the initial phases of the Presidential campaign, when Romney was said to be ahead of Obama.

After it was known that Obama has been re-elected, Angela Merkel said in this AFP video, “I would like to congratulate re-elected Barack Obama. We know each other well. I am delighted about working together.”

Obama has always stressed the point of having a broader relationship between the US and China. With Obama re-elected, he has a greater chance of taking the relations between the two countries to another level. Hong Lei, Chinese Foreign ministry spokesman was delighted with Obama's victory, as he also said, “Over the past four years, through the effort by two sides, the China and the US have made positive progress.”

Though, most of the countries were happy with Obama's win, but some did look at it with a different telescope, like Sergey Rogov from Russian Academy of science, as he said, “Obama has won, that means reviving American and Russian politics will continue, even so in coming weeks, we can expect new wave of anti-Russia propaganda.” But, for Russia, it was better to see Obama getting re-elected rather than Romney, as the latter had stated that Russia was Washington's main foe.

Apart from dignitaries, there were some close friends and family members who sent congratulatory messages. One such person was his step grandmother, Mama Sarah Obama in Western Kenya, who said, “This is more important than the first one, because, he has gone back for the second time and won again.”

The residents of the US have shown faith in Obama to improve upon the future of the country, as they have been suffering because of slow economy and the growing unemployment, not to forget the debt that the US has been trapped in. So, in the next four years, Obama needs to clear all his problems, if he wants people to consider him as one of the best American president.
