Nov 09, 2020(Nyamilepedia) — Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok joins the world leaders in sending congratulatory message to the American President-elect Joe Biden and his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, who will soon becomes the first female president in the history of the United States, for winning the presidential elections.
The prime Minister shared his message through a social media post in which he said that he is looking forward to continued friendship with the United States.
“On behalf of the Sudanese people, I congratulate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for their election as President & Vice President.” Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok tweeted on late Saturday.
“Looking forward to working closely with them both to continue building bridges of friendship and cooperation between our two nations and countries.” He added.
Sudan has seen an improved relationship with the U.S. In the recent month as the U.S. came to terms to remove Sudan from the list of terror sponsor states on condition that the Sudanese compensates the terror victims as well as normalizes ties with Israel.
Sudan is obliged to these conditions and is still awaiting the Congress to restore its sovereign immunities after which the two countries will finalize a deal that will cost Sudan $335 million U.S. dollar.
The Sudanese authorities are hopeful that Biden and Harris would be supportive for the democratic transition in the country and support the civilian government in Khartoum which faces huge economic and political challenges.
Many African leaders have sent in their congratulaty messages; however, the Americans are still finalizing a chaotic elections where the sitting presidents refused to admit defeats.
Although he has been vocal about fraud and his intention to refuse to acknowledge defeats before the election, Donald Trump is taking it very serious and threatening to make transition hard for the incoming Biden-Harris leadership.
In a chaotic decision, President Trump fired his Secretary of Defense today and replaced him with Christopher C. Miller, the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center.
“I am pleased to announce that Christopher C. Miller, the highly respected Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (unanimously confirmed by the Senate), will be Acting Secretary of Defense, effective immediately.. …Chris will do a GREAT job! Mark Esper has been terminated. I would like to thank him for his service,” Trump tweeted.
Despite, the White House controversies, many American leaders including the former Presidents and the world leaders have congratulated the President-elect Joe Biden and promised to work with him.
