It was the fateful morning of Saturday, 7 November 2020. At last,CNN, along
with all the major networks, was able to project Joe Biden as the
winner  of his native Pennsylvania with its 20 electoral
votes. That cinched Biden’s election as the 46th
President of the United States.
He was with his family in their home in Delaware.
Joe Biden @JoeBiden: From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I warmly congratulate Mr Joe Biden on his victory in the US presidential election and look forward to meeting him at the earliest possible opportunity.

The European Union and the United States are friends and allies, our citizens share the deepest of links. Together we have built an unprecedented transatlantic partnership rooted in common history and shared values of democracy, freedom, human rights, social justice and open economy. This partnership has underpinned the liberal rules-based international order for decades and remains a pillar of stability, security and prosperity on both sides of the Atlantic.

As the world continues to change and new challenges and opportunities appear, our renewed partnership will be of particular importance.
The European Commission stands ready to intensify cooperation with the new Administration and the new Congress to address pressing challenges we face and notably: fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic and social consequences, tackling climate change together, promoting a digital transformation that benefits people, strengthening our common security, as well as reforming the rules-based multilateral system.

Prime Minister, Australia

On behalf of the Australian Government, I congratulate President-elect Joe Biden on his election as the 46th President of the United States and wish him every success for his term in office.

The President-elect has been a great friend of Australia over many years, including when he visited Australia in 2016.

The Australia-US Alliance is enduring and built on shared democratic values such as the international rule of law, respect for human rights and equality, freedom of religion and belief, freedom of expression and diversity of opinion. . .

American leadership is indispensable. . . [We] look forward to working with President-elect Biden and his Administration to continue to fight the COVID-19 global pandemic and recession, to develop a vaccine, drive a global economic recovery, and develop new technologies to reduce global emissions as we practically confront the challenge of climate change. We welcome the President-elect’s commitment to multilateral institutions and strengthening democracies.

I also extend my congratulations to Kamala Harris on her election as Vice President of the United States.

On behalf of the Australian Government I also acknowledge and thank President Donald J. Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for their contribution to the Australia-US relationship. . .

We will continue to work closely with President Trump and his administration in the transition period between now and 20 January.

Narendra Modi
Prime Minister, India

Heartiest congratulations @KamalaHarris !
Your success is pathbreaking, and a matter of immense pride not just for your chittis, but also for all Indian-Americans. I am confident that the vibrant India-US ties will get even stronger with your support and leadership.

Several world leaders have not immediately gone public and congratulated President- and Vice-President-elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their electoral victory.
