EU and NATO leaders congratulated President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, calling for stronger cooperation between his country and the European Community. This is reported by Deutsche Welle with reference to the statements of the heads of the European Commission, the European Parliament, and NATO.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg congratulated Biden, calling him a "strong supporter of NATO and the transatlantic relationship".
"US leadership is as important as ever in an unpredictable world, and I look forward to working very closely with President-elect Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, and the new administration to further strengthen the bond between North America and Europe," he said.
"A strong NATO is good for North America and good for Europe."
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said she “warmly” congratulated Biden in a statement on Twitter and said, "The European Commission stands ready to intensify cooperation with the new Administration and the new Congress to address pressing challenges we face."
As we reported earlier, democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was able to get the 270 electoral votes needed to win the election.
Joe Biden has come out ahead in most key states. So far, this does not mean an official victory, since the electoral college will elect the US president only on December 14.
According to CNN, 273 electors voted for Joe Biden, while only 213 voted for Donald Trump.
