US Elections: British Prime Minister Cameron congratulates Obama

 David CameronLONDON (AFP) – British Prime Minster David Cameron on Wednesday said he was looking forward to working again with “friend” Barack Obama after his victory in the US presidential race.

“Warm congratulations to my friend BarackObama,” Cameron wrote on his Twitter account. “Look forward to continuing to work together.”

Obama swept to re-election Tuesday, making history by overcoming a slow economic recovery and the high unemployment which haunted his first term to beat Republican Mitt Romney.

The 44th US president, and the first African American to claim the Oval Office, was returned to power after a bitter election campaign when television networks projected he would take Ohio and his spiritual political home of Iowa.

“This happened because of you. Thank you,” Obama tweeted to his 22 million followers on Twitter as jubilation erupted at his victory party in Chicago.

Cameron on Wednesday visited a desert refugee camp for Syrians in northern Jordan, on the last stop of a three-nation Middle East tour.

On his arrival at the Zaatari refugee camp, where more than 36,000 Syrians are housed in tents and caravans, Cameron headed directly to offices of the United Nations to speak with officials there.
