German Chancellor Angela Merkel highlighted this Monday, when congratulating Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their electoral victory, that The US and the EU “must stand together” in the fight against covid-19 and global warming.

“The US and Germany as part of the European Union must stand together to overcome the great challenges of our time,” he said in a brief statement on the US elections.

In his opinion The US and the EU must stand “shoulder to shoulder in the difficult examination of the coronavirus pandemic, in the fight against global warming and its global consequences, in the fight against terrorism, for an open society and free trade “.

“These are the foundations of well-being on both sides of the Atlantic,” said the Chancellor, who highlighted the importance of bilateral relations and of a “friendship” of decades, a “common treasure”.

He also referred to the “core values” that the US and Europe share, like the individual, democracy and freedom.

The chancellor recognized that in this relationship Europeans must progressively assume “more responsibility” in the fields of defense and foreign policy, something that the US “expects and rightly so.” “We Europeans have set out on the road,” Merkel added.

The Chancellor again congratulated Biden and Harris, to whom she already addressed a message of congratulations on Saturday, and highlighted from the president-elect his “experience” in domestic and foreign politics and their past encounters.

De Harris stressed that, as America’s first female vice president and “daughter of immigrants” is an “inspiration and an example” of the “possibilities” that the United States offers.

Both have a “great responsibility” before them, concluded Merkel, wishing them luck in their new positions.

Merkel never quoted outgoing President Donald Trump with whom he has maintained a difficult relationship due to criticism and slights from the American.

Trump has repeatedly criticized Germany for its high trade surplus, because its defense budget does not reach the equivalent of 2% of gross domestic product (GDP), for its immigration policy and for the Nord Stream 2, the gas pipeline under construction between Russia and Germany
