SOUNDBITE (English) Herman VAN ROMPUY, President of the European Council
I'm very happy with the re-election of President Obama. The European Union and the US are close friends and key partners and together we fought and we are still fighting for values such as peace, freedom and democracy. Over last four years we have wored intensively with President Obama to address economic challenges. On both sides of the Atlantic our priorities are the same, growth and create jobs, but not only that. We also want to continue our excellent cooperation on foreign policy issues. The world needs our joint action based on common values such as equal opportunities and solidarity. We look forward to the next EU-US summit with the President to continue to work on a common agenda with renewed energy and renewed enthusiasm.
