BELGIUM–(ENEWSPF)–07 November 2012. The following statement is attributed to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen:
I extend my warm congratulations to President Obama on his re-election as President of the United States.
The bond between Europe and North America, based upon the shared values on which our Alliance was founded over 60 years ago, remains as strong, and as important to the preservation of Euro-Atlantic peace and security as ever.
President Obama has demonstrated outstanding leadership in maintaining this vital bond, and I look forward to continuing our close cooperation to ensure NATO remains effective in a fast-changing world, against new threats, with new capabilities, and an ever stronger network of partners across the globe.
