I personally would like to congratulate newly elected (or better to say – re-elected) US President Barack Obama, his family and all his supporters with his victory and to wish Americans further development and only positive changes. And I really hope Mr. Obama’s policies will be effective and will have the positive impact on the situation in USA and in the world. And as a person interested in Middle East and its situation I’d like to express my hopes that US policies towards this region will be effective and supportive for the Middle Eastern countries.
Congratulations to Barack Obama, new US President!
