"Obama should take advantage of his second term, and use the opportunity to prevent the U.S. from trying to police the world, and focus instead on solving the problems of Americans," according to the statement.

Among other foreign policy hot spots worldwide, there is some hope of increased dialogue.
China is willing to work with the U.S. to forge greater cooperation, says Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei, according to the Voice of America.
Obama has been outspoken in his approach to the Pacific Rim powerhouse, calling for a newfound "pivot to Asia" to address China's shifting role in the region and in the world.
His re-election comes two days before the Chinese Communist Party Congress convenes to declare new leadership in secretive deliberations among the country's top political echelon. Current President Hu Jintao will likely cede power to Vice President Xi Jinping.

Japan and China have flexed their respective naval muscle in recent months as both countries, particularly China, seeks to redefine its influence on the region.
