WASHINGTON, DC – The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, today congratulated the President of the United States, Barack Obama, for his reelection in the polls held Tuesday.

The leader of the OAS wrote, in a letter sent to President Obama, that “the people of the Americas share your vision for peace, stronger democracy and greater development for our region and the world. We are encouraged by yesterday’s events and the message sent by the people of this country on its determination to continue the long lasting tradition of hope and cooperation that unites the nations of this hemisphere.”
