Chinese Leader Congratulates Biden Over Election

Beijing has remained quiet in recent days about the results of the U.S. election, but on Wednesday, Chinese leader Xi Jinping congratulated democratic nominee Joe Biden, marking China’s formal recognition of the results. However, lawsuits over possible election fraud are still underway in several U.S. states. In his message to Biden, Xi wrote that he hopes both countries uphold the spirit of non-conflict, non-confrontation.
