President Obama spoke by phone today with Nawaz Sharif, President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, to congratulate him on his party’s success in the May 11 Parliamentary elections. The President also thanked Mr. Sharif for his role in the historic transfer of power between civilian governments, a significant milestone in Pakistan’s democracy.

President Obama praised the extraordinary voter turnout and courage that Pakistanis displayed in the face of intimidation by violent extremists, which was an inspiration to all who support democracy around the globe. The two leaders agreed to continue to work together to strengthen U.S.-Pakistan relations and advance our shared interest of a stable, secure, and prosperous Pakistan and region.
