President Barack Obama says his relationships with world leaders are better now than when he first took over the office.

Replying to a question whether his relationship with other G20 leaders suffered because of some electoral setbacks back home, he said his relationships with some of the leaders were far better now than two years ago when he first assumed the presidency.

Mr. Singh, he took out the name of Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh first and said, We share the same views and we have a good understanding on several issues.

Obama also stressed that his relationship with China's President Hu Jintao improved, besides saying that he did raise the currency issue with him.
