Barack Obama Talks of "New Way Forward" on Foreign Policy

January 20, 2009

(AP) - President Barack Obama is telling the world's Muslims that his administration will be looking for a "new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect."

And he's warning leaders around the globe who try to encourage conflict and "blame their society's ills on the West" that their people will judge them on what they build, not what they destroy.

In his inaugural address, Obama also pledged broader engagement in the world. He said the people of the world should know that America is a friend of all who seek "a future of peace and dignity," Obama vowed that the U.S. is "ready to lead once more."

He's also pledging to "work alongside" the people of poor
nations to make "farms flourish and let clean waters flow."
