It’s not just Americans who cared about the U.S. presidential election. People around the world are reacting to the re-election of President Barack Obama.
FOX News Radio’s Simon Owen reports from London:
The time difference means it was past 5am across much of Europe when the result was called. There were overnight election parties across the continent, including in Paris.
Now the leaders of France, Britain, Russia and Germany are among those sending messages of congratulations. But the British Prime Minister David Cameron has also warned:
(Cameron) “There are so many things that we need to do. We need to kick-start the world economy.”
Cameron says he also wants to discuss doing more to end the war in Syria.

Countries in the Middle East all feel very differently about Obama’s re-election.
FOX News Radio’s Emily Wither has the details from Jerusalem:
Here in Israel, President Shimon Peres welcomed President Obama’s re-election, hoping he’ll follow tough words on Iran with actions.
(Peres) “I believe what he says is what he means and intends.”
In Obama’s former school in Indonesia there were cheers. But in Lebanon the outcome didn’t matter for many. This man doesn’t think much will change:
(MOS) ” The American policy is pro-Israel and they do everything to protect the Zionist regime.”
While in Egypt many were pleased with Obama’s re-election:
(MOS) “Mitt Romney using the cowboy policy or cowboy diplomacy.”
That man from Egypt’s Freedom and Justice party felt Obama was more balanced.
