The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh has warmly congratulated President Barak Obama on winning this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
Prime Minister of India said in a statement: “The citation for the Prize admirably reflects your personal qualities of leadership and the new perspectives that you have brought to bear on the conduct of relations between different countries and cultures, and on some of the most burning issues of our times.”
He said that, “The world today is in need of a healing touch. Your pursuit of an inclusive approach to problem solving, and primacy to dialogue as an instrument of policy are setting new benchmarks for the world community.”
Prime Minister Dr. Singh emphasized, “Peace and non-violence are part of India’s ethos. Your recent statement that the America of today has its roots in the India of Mahatma Gandhi therefore has a particularly evocative resonance in India.”
Prime Minister said that he is looking forward to working with President Obama for the world peace and wished him success as President of United States.
