(Karachi) Prime Minister Imran Khan congratulated the United States President-elect Joe Biden and his vice president Kamala Harris on winning the elections, Radio Pakistan has reported.
In a tweet soon after confirmed reports announced both Democrats have won, the PM said He said he looked forward to President-elect Biden’s Global Summit on Democracy.
He stated, "Look forward to President Elect Biden's Global Summit on Democracy & working with him to end illegal tax havens & stealth of nation's wealth by corrupt leaders." He added, "We will also continue to work with US for peace in Afghanistan & in the region."
Democrat Joe Biden captured the US presidency on Saturday, as voters narrowly rebuffed Republican incumbent Donald Trump’s tumultuous leadership and embraced Biden’s promise to fight the coronavirus pandemic and fix the economy in a divided nation.
Trump immediately accused Biden of “rushing to falsely pose as the winner.” “This election is far from over,” he said in a statement.
Biden’s projected victory came after four days of nail-biting suspense over the outcome of Tuesday’s election, with the counting of votes in a handful of battleground states still going on thanks to a flood of mail-in ballots.
