    2008-11-10 14:17:07     Xinhua
Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said in Canberra on Monday that Australia remained confident its ties with the United States will prosper and develop under the leadership of Barack Obama.

Rudd told the parliament the world would continue to look to the US to provide global leadership on many challenges facing nations.

"When Senator Obama is sworn in as the president of the United States on the 20th of January next year, the Australian government will be ready to work closely with the new administration to build on the strong foundation that already exists," he said.

"The Australian government looks forward to building a partnership with the new administration, which will reinforce the vital and natural ties that have always existed between Australia and the United States," he said.

But he noted that in the months ahead, Australia looked forward to working closely with President Bush and his administration on many immediate challenges, most critically the global financial crisis, where the president's continuing leadership remains important.
