ZAGREB, Nov 8 (Hina) – Croatian President Zoran Milanovic on Saturday congratulated U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on his victory in the presidential elections and said he was confident that this victory would mean the restoration of the trans-Atlantic partnership.
President Milanovic said in his message that Croatia would have not only an ally but also a friend in Biden since he “understands very well our recent history which I could see during our previous meaningful talks.”
The trust of a record-high number of U.S. voters placed in Biden shows that we must persist in believing in democracy even when it is at test, the Croatian head of state underscored.
“I am confident that the victory of Joe Biden will mean the restoration of the Euro-Atlantic partnership that has been in jeopardy and that Europe will again be the main ally of the USA,” Milanovic said adding that this would be beneficial for the globalised world, Europe and Croatia.
Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic also congratulated Biden.
Congratulations to President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, Plenkovic wrote on Twitter on Saturday evening.
The Croatian government looks forward to working with you and your administration on strengthening bilateral ties and enhancing transatlantic partnership, he added.
Joe Biden was declared US President-Elect on Saturday after surpassing the 270 electoral votes required to win the White House.
