WASHINGTON -- US President Barack Obama spoke by phone with Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday, offering his congratulations to the premier on his election as Turkey's first president.

The two leaders discussed efforts to forge a cease-fire in Gaza between Israel and Hamas, according to the White House, which provided no further details of the conversation.

On Erdogan's election, Obama "noted that as Turkey’s first directly elected president, the prime minister has an historic opportunity to further move Turkey forward."

Erdogan won the poll with 52 percent of the vote, avoiding a runoff election. He has won nine consecutive electoral victories during his career in Turkish politics.
