China congratulates Biden and Harris while awaiting official results

The Chinese Government has finally sent its congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on Friday after the presidential elections on November 3, although it has insisted through a spokesperson, as it did earlier this week, that it is also pending the official confirmation of the results of the elections.

“We respect the decision of the American people and we congratulate Mr. Biden and Mrs. Harris,” said the spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Wang Wenbin, although without explicitly designating both for their positions as president-elect or vice president-elect.

Until this moment, the spokesman had avoided making a firm statement. Last Monday, Wang limited herself to replying that her country would respond “in accordance with common international practice,” before defending the need for Beijing and Washington to resolve their possible differences on the basis of “mutual respect.”

In this sense, and before the intention of the outgoing president, Donald Trump, to dispute the result of the elections, the spokesman has once again stated that China conveys its congratulations “under the understanding that the result must be confirmed in accordance with the laws and procedures of the United States “, according to the statement collected by the ‘South China Morning Post’.
