“The world needs a strong relationship between Europe and the United States, especially in these difficult times. We hope to work together to combat covid-19, climate change and growing inequality, “said David Sassoli, head of the European Parliament, in a congratulatory message to Biden and Harris. European Council President Charles Michel also said that the EU was ready to work with the next US administration on a “strong transatlantic partnership”.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg also congratulated the elected president, saying Biden is a strong supporter of the North Atlantic Alliance. “I am impatient to be able to work closely with him. A strong NATO is good for North America and Europe, “Stoltenberg said.
Congratulations to the election winners also came from Canada from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: “Our countries are close friends, partners and allies. We have a unique relationship on the world stage. I’m really looking forward to working with you, “he wrote on Twitter.
According to Babiš, it is important for the new president to join NATO
The Czech president pointed out that Americans have the will to change. IN letters addressed to Biden, he also stated that he believed in cooperation, not in the US economic restrictions on Europe, with which he had long and deeply disagreed.
On Twitter, Prime Minister Babiš congratulated Biden and said that “it is important for the new president to actively subscribe to allied commitments to NATO and seek a trade agreement with the EU.” The Prime Minister looks forward to comprehensive and friendly cooperation.
Shortly after the announcement of the projected victory, the head of Czech diplomacy Tomáš Petříček (ČSSD) said on Czech Television: “Not much will change for the Czech Republic, however, this may lead to an improvement in the situation between the European Union and the USA. Joe Biden and his advisers are Euro-Atlanticists. ”However, he did not want to congratulate him, which, according to him, traditionally belongs to the head of state. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Jan Hamáček (CSSD) also sees Biden’s election as an opportunity to strengthen transatlantic cooperation.
