Iraq congratulates Biden: He is a reliable friend and partner

On Saturday, Iraqi President Barham Salih congratulated Democratic candidate Joe Biden on his victory in the US presidential elections.

Saleh said in a tweet on Twitter, “I extend my warmest congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden, a trusted friend and partner in the cause of building a better Iraq.”

Saleh added, “We look forward to working to achieve our common goals and to promote peace and stability in the entire Middle East region.”

And American media, including NBC and CNN, announced Biden’s victory in the elections after the votes of Pennsylvania were decided in his favor.

The election witnessed the highest turnout since 1900, and Biden has won more than 73 million votes so far, the largest number ever for a US presidential candidate.

Trump’s loss in the election race makes him the first single-term president since the 1990s. Source
