Joe Biden inauguration: World reaction
on: January 20, 2021, 10:20:26 PM

Joe Biden has been sworn in as president of the United States, following his election victory over Donald Trump last year.

Here are some of the global responses to Wednesday’s transfer of power in Washington, DC. This list will be updated as more reactions from leaders around the world pour in.


Prime Minister Imran Khan on Twitter said he hoped to work with the newly elected Biden “in building a stronger Pak-US partnership”.


Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he looks forward to working with the incoming president.

“I look forward to working with him [Biden], and with his new administration, strengthening the partnership between our countries and working on our shared priorities, from tackling climate change, building back better from the pandemic and strengthening our transatlantic security,” Johnson said.


Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani sent a cable of congratulations to Biden on the occasion of Biden taking the oath, wishing him success in his duties and pledging friendship and strategic cooperation between the two countries in their further development and growth.


In a video statement, President Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Biden taking the helm marked a “good day for democracy”.


“In the United States of America, it [democracy] has faced tremendous challenges – and endured. Despite the attempts to tear at America’s institutional fabric, election workers and governors, the judiciary and Congress have proven strong,” he said.

European Union

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the US was “back”.

“Europe stands ready. To reconnect with an old and trusted partner,” she wrote on Twitter.


Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said he was “looking forward” to working with the Biden presidency.

“We have a strong common agenda, ranging from the effective multilateralism that we both want to see to climate change, green and digital transition and social inclusion,” Conte said.


China’s local and state media outlet Xinhua wrote an editorial hailing the end of Trump’s term, saying “good riddance to the current US administration and its final madness”.
