Anandpur Sahib (Punjab), Nov.7 (ANI): Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Wednesday congratulated U.S. President Barack Obama on his re-election.

Obama won a second term in the White House after a vote on Tuesday (November 6), defeating Republican challenger Matt Romney.

"I congratulate President Obama on his victory and his really hard fought election. We look forward to working with the president for the next four years. We have had a very good and productive working relationship. We are both focused on jobs and growth in the global economy, particularly in north America. And I look forward in particular to working with him on the 'Beyond the Border' initiative, which is obviously very important for the opportunities for Canadians and Americans going forward," Harper said.

Harper is on a week long trip to Asia and has been pressing for greater openness from partners in the region to trade and investment from Canada. He called for a serious push to complete a foreign investment protection deal and a free trade agreement with India.

India is also eyeing Canada's energy resources. (ANI)
