(Worthy News)-- President Barack Obama said his administration has restored the United States as the "the most respected country on earth," during a town hall meeting with YSEALI Fellows, an exchange program for community leaders from ASEAN, The Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
Obama said, "People don't remember, but when I came into office, the Untied States in world opinion ranked below China and just barley above Russia, and today once again, the Untied States is the most respected country on earth. Part of that I think is because of the work we did to reengage the world and say we want to work with you as partners with mutual interests and mutual respect. It was on that basis we were able to end two wars while still focusing on the very real threat of terrorism and try to work with our partners in Iraq and Afghanistan. It's the reason why we are moving in the direction to normalize relations with Cuba and the nuclear deal that we are trying to negotiate with Iran."
