PM Imran congratulates Biden, says he ‘looks forward’ to working with new administration
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday congratulated new US President Joe Biden on his inauguration and said he was “looking forward” to building a stronger Pakistani partnership with him through trade and economic involvement.
“Looking forward to building a stronger Pak-US partnership with @POTUS through trade and economic involvement, combating climate change, improving public health, fighting corruption and promoting peace in the region and out there, “the prime minister tweeted.
Democrat Joe Biden was sworn in as president of the United States on Wednesday, accepting the helm of a country teeming with deep political divisions, a battered economy and a raging coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 Americans.
Biden, 78, became the oldest U.S. president in history during a beleagured ceremony in Washington that was largely stripped of its usual splendor and circumstances, due to the coronavirus and security concerns following the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump.
Republican President Donald Trump left the White House on Wednesday after a tumultuous four years in office, hours before Democrat Joe Biden accepted the leadership of a country plagued by deep political divisions and plagued by a furious coronavirus pandemic.
Trump just left the White House with his wife Melania and went by helicopter to a launch event at Joint Air Force Base Andrews, where he promised supporters “we will be back in some form” and glorified the successes of his administration before flying to Florida.
