The results are finally here and the world is reacting to Joe Biden’s victory over Donald Trump in the US presidential election.

For days, people around the world have been tied to the White House race.

Not only the US is affected by the election of a new president – a new leader in the White House can change the country’s foreign policy and its attitude towards friends and foes alike.

The Trump campaign has shown that its candidate has no intention of admitting.

However, this has not stopped numerous Heads of State congratulating Mr Biden and his Vice President Kamala Harris. Here are a few:
