Bush, Rice and Ban Ki-moon comment on Obama's victory
    2008-11-06 09:09:33     CRIENGLISH.com

  US President George W. Bush has fully embraced the election of Democrat Barack Obama as his successor, paying stirring tribute to the first U.S. black president-elect.

On Wednesday, he called Obama's win an "impressive victory", and promised Obama his "complete cooperation" during the Democrat's 76-day transition to the White House.

"No matter how they cast their ballots, all Americans can be proud of the history that was made yesterday. I told the president-elect he could count on complete cooperation from my administration as he makes the transition to the White House."

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice also congratulated Obama, saying she was "especially proud" of the Tuesday's presidential elections as an African American.

On the same day, the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that the election of Barack Obama as president of the United States will move the world into a new era of "multilateralism and dialogue".

"I am confident that we can look forward to an era of renewed partnership and a new multilateralism. If ever there were a time for the world to join together, it is now. The global financial crisis, the crisis of climate change, the challenge of fulfilling our promises on the Millennium Development Goals, made more difficult by the twin crises of food and energy prices. These are profound challenges requiring collaboration and cooperation."
