After some days of silence, China; the country that Trump’s administration has been waging trade war against has congratulated United States President-elect Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris on their election success.
While addressing press on Friday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said that China “respected the choice of the American people.”
“We congratulate Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris. At the same time, we understand that the outcome of this US election will be ascertained in accordance with US laws and procedures,” he said.
Recall that four days ago, Wang had dodged CNN questions when China would congratulate the US President-elect.
