5 November 2008: Press Release by the Prime Minister of the Czech republic on the election of Barack Obama as President of the USA

I congratulate the new US President Barack Obama on his election. The result comes as no surprise and does nothing to alter relations between the Czech Republic and the USA. I hope we will soon be able to welcome the new US President to Prague. During his election campaign, Barack Obama unleashed a host of expectations concerning his handling of domestic and global challenges. The whole world will now watch in anticipation to see how he keeps the promises he has made. In this respect, the Czech Republic cannot be disregardful of the approach Barack Obama takes to matters such as the repercussions of the global financial crisis and climate issues. 

Mirek Topolánek, Prime Minister of the Czech Republic
