KABUL (PAN): US President Barack Obama has greeted Muslims across the globe on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr. saying his country would continue to stand by all those people in their efforts to secure basic necessities and fundamental freedoms, referring to the popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.

“Millions all over the world have been inspired to honour their faith by reaching out to those less fortunate. This year, many have observed the month while courageously persevering in their efforts to secure basic necessities and fundamental freedoms,” he said.
