Former vice president Joe Biden was unlawfully announced the winner of the 2020 heated presidential election Saturday by Western media networks while vote count was still going on in some states with President Trump alleging election fraud mostly in core Democrats grounds.
The over publicized Biden victory as president-elect attracted world leaders like United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johns who tweeted his congratulations to Biden and later, in a fresh tweet updating, “I just spoke to @JoeBiden to congratulate him on his election. I look forward to strengthening the partnership between our countries and to working with him on our shared priorities – from tackling climate change, to promoting democracy and building back better from the pandemic.”
French President Emmanuel Macron also congratulated the former president as the president-elect on a phone call. Some other world leaders who called in include Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and leader of the United Kingdom Irish government Micheal Martin, leaving the Western media worried over why the strongest men in the world have not called to congratulate the Democrat who served as vice president with Barack Obama.
During a meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) via video link hosted by Russia, which holds the rotating SCO presidency this year, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday attended virtually, which marks the first public appearance of top leaders from China and Russia, the “two major competitors” in the eyes of the US, after Joe Biden announced his supposed victory in the US presidential election.
The remarks made by Xi and Putin, as well as other SCO members’ leaders, have released new messages to the changing world. Both leaders believe that many US allies have congratulated Biden and as they are desperately expecting the US to continue to play the role of a leader for them.
But the divided society and internal struggles will make US hegemony decline unavoidably, so China and Russia, two major powers and UN Security Council permanent members have to stay back and plan for the upcoming changes that the US would bring to the international relations, according to the Global Times.
As mainstream media express curiosity over Xi and Putin’s silence regarding “Biden’s supposed victory,” Chinese analysts said the two major powers share similar understanding over the US presidential election as they were patiently waiting for the US to solve all possible legal rows and project a final undisputed result.
Yang said, “China and Russia have always been groundlessly accused by some forces within the US of ‘meddling in US elections,’ and the two countries share a common ground of non-interference in US internal affairs. So now they are very cautious rather than cheering Biden’s victory too soon with the Western liberal world“.
The partnership that exists between China and Russia is getting more mature as the two nations have formed a highly consistent and tacit strategic mentality, and this strong partnership has not in any way been weakened even a little by the power transition within the US, the Chinese analysts said.
