Putin Finally Accepts To Recognise Biden’s Victory In US Election

Washington: Russian President Vladimir Putin has finally congratulated President-elect Joe Biden over his victory after more than a month of the presidential election, striking a conciliatory tone in a telegram on Tuesday despite rising tensions between the two powers.

“Putin wished the president-elect every success and expressed confidence that Russia and the United States, which bear special responsibility for global security and stability, can, despite their differences, really contribute to solving many problems and challenges that the world is currently facing,” the Kremlin announced in a statement Tuesday morning, hours after the Electoral College voted to affirm Biden’s victory over President Donald Trump late Monday.

Russia was among the final countries to recognize Biden’s victory and issue congratulations, previously citing the ongoing legal and political actions Trump and his supporters have employed in recent weeks to challenge the results of the election. The Kremlin did not mention Trump in its statement.

Cooperation between the two countries is based on “the principles of equality and mutual respect would meet the interests of the peoples of both countries and the entire international community,” according to a translation of the statement. Putin added, “For my part, I am ready for interaction and contacts with you.”

Putin’s message of congratulations to Biden will be another blow to the Trump administration. Unlike its European neighbors who sent Biden their messages of congratulations immediately following his election win.
