Sánchez promises Biden 'full cooperation' over 'huge global challenges'
10 November 2020 @ 20:40

SPAIN'S leader Pedro Sánchez has sent his congratulations to Joe Biden for winning the US elections and becoming president, and to Kamala Harris, the first female deputy president in the North American nation's history and only the second black American in a position of this calibre, after Barack Obama.

Sánchez has wished them both 'lots of luck' and stressed Spain and its government is ready and willing to 'cooperate' with the USA in the face of the 'huge global challenges' the world's population is facing.

“The American people have elected their 46th president. Congratulations, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. I wish you both luck,” Spain's socialist (PSOE) leader tweeted, in Spanish and also in English, a language he speaks fluently.

Although Sánchez has not specifically defined the 'huge global challenges' Spain is 'ready and willing' to help with, it seems likely he includes the Covid-19 pandemic in this description, and also climate change, an issue over which acting and outgoing president Donald Trump pulled the USA out of cooperation with the EU, which by default, included Spain.

Trump, who lost the elections after his four-year term as POTUS came to an end this month, had pulled the country out of the Paris Agreement on climate change action, as he does not believe in it, but Democrat leader Joe Biden has pledged to rejoin it.
