I warmly congratulate President Obama on winning the Nobel Peace Prize. As the Nobel Committee said, President Obama has made extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.

He has also demonstrated his strong commitment to help build peace and defend fundamental human rights, including through the Atlantic Alliance.  This honour is well deserved.
