New Delhi: Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has congratulated President Barack Obama on his re-election as the President of the United States.

In his congratulatory message to President Obama, Singh said that the mandate has given Obama a “historic opportunity” to continue to work for the welfare of the American people as also for global peace and progress at an "admittedly difficult juncture", not just for the U.S., but indeed for the world at large.

He further said, “Over the last four years, consistent with our vision of a global strategic partnership between India and the United States, the ties between our two democracies have seen sustained growth.  We have not only advanced cooperation across the full spectrum of our bilateral relationship, but also deepened our engagement in the pursuit of global peace, stability and prosperity.”

“I have personally valued our friendship and I look forward to continuing our rewarding association in order to build further on the enduring foundations   of our shared values and the accomplishments of the past four years.   I have  no doubt that there is much more we can do together to further strengthen the India-U.S. partnership and thereby advance peace and stability, expand mutual economic opportunities, harness the potential of science and technology, innovation and higher education and empower our people to address global challenges,” the Prime Minister concluded.
