Three world leaders known for their anti-American views are endorsing President Barack Obama’s re-election, Fox News reports.

Venezuela President Hugo Chavez, the socialist-leaning leader who won a fourth term this month, reportedly said that Obama was a “good guy.”

Meanwhile, the daughter of Cuban President Raul Castro, Mariela Castro, in June told CNN that, “As a citizen of the world, I would like (Obama) to win.”

She had been speaking in Spanish. The Castro family has ruled Cuba under Communism for over 50 years.

And in Russia, President Vladimir Putin has said Obama’s re-election could improve relations between the nations.

Putin, the former prime minister, also reportedly said the president was a “genuine person" who "really wants to change much for the better."

But Putin did tell The Wall Street Journal that he could work with Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The former Massachusetts governor had said Russia was the “No. 1 geopolitical foe” of the US.

Putin called the remark "pre-election rhetoric," Fox reports.
