British Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday congratulated Barack Obama upon his re-election as the U.S. president, saying he is looking forward to continuing to work together.

"I have really enjoyed working with him over the last few years and I look forward to working with him again over the next four years," Cameron, who is currently on a visit to the Gulf countries, said.

"There are so many things that we need to do: we need to kick-start the world economy and I want to see an EU-U.S. trade deal," Cameron is quoted as saying by the BBC.

Foreign Secretary William Hague said he was looking forward to working with President Obama and his team on "shared foreign policy goals."

Obama was re-elected in a close race with his Republican rival Mitt Romney, becoming the second Democrat to win a second four-year term since the World War II.
