China said on Monday that it had taken cognizance of Joe Biden’s announcement of victory in the US presidential elections, but would not send any congratulatory messages at the moment. Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said that the outcome of the election would be determined under US law and procedures and China would follow international rules in expressing its sentiments. Let us know that on the second day of President Trump’s election in 2016, on November 9, he was congratulated by the Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Relations with China’s President Donald Trump were sparked by trade, technology and influence in Asia and other parts of the world. Analysts believe that China is expected to bring the relationship with Biden into the low-tension category. However, Beijing did not comment during the entire election and whenever asked in this regard, it called it an internal political matter of the United States.
Wang said in his daily briefing, ‘Biden has declared victory in the election. We understand that the outcome of the presidential election will be determined by US laws and procedures. In the context of the statement on the results, Wang said that China would follow international rules. China is one of the few major nations that have not yet issued a statement on the elections. On the other hand, it is believed that Trump will do something that will harm China on the go. This may include steps such as a ban on Chinese state-owned companies, a ban on other Chinese apps after TickTalk.
Russia will wait for official results
On Monday congratulating Biden, Russia said it would wait for the official results of the election. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is also quiet after Biden won the election. Let us tell you that when Biden made anti-Russia statements during the campaign, Putin gave a befitting reply. Although his comments on nuclear weapons control were welcomed.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia thought it better to wait longer than to greet someone. He said, “I think one has to wait better before congratulating anyone before the official announcement.” However, when asked if Putin congratulated Trump immediately after winning Electoral College in 2016, Peskov said that there was something else at the time.
