MOSCOW, November 7 (RIA Novosti) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated US President Barack Obama on his election victory, the Kremlin press service said on Wednesday.

“Putin noted the results reached in the past years in developing Russian-US relations and expressed hope for further constructive joint work both on bilateral agenda and on acute global and regional problems,” the Kremlin press service said in a statement.

The Russian president also “stressed that cooperation between countries like Russia and the US is of key importance for stable and secure global development.”

“Tangible results have been reached in the past years in developing our bilateral relations. However, an array of tasks remains to be solved in order to reach the full potential of mutually beneficial cooperation,” he said.

The Russian leader reiterated his invitation for Obama to visit Russia next year.

Putin sent his congratulations to Obama on Wednesday afternoon, and spokesman Dmitry Peskov told RIA Novosti that the Kremlin “positively” welcomes Obama’s reelection.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev added that he was "glad" the victor was "not someone who considers Russia enemy number one."
