The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the inauguration of Joe Biden as President of the United States of America:

“On behalf of the Government of Canada, I congratulate Joe Biden on his inauguration as the 46th President of the United States of America.

“Canada and the United States enjoy one of the most unique relationships in the world, built on a shared commitment to democratic values, common interests, and strong economic and security ties. Our two countries are more than neighbours – we are close friends, partners, and allies.

We will continue this partnership as we fight the global COVID-19 pandemic and support a sustainable economic recovery that will build back better for everyone. We will also work together to advance climate action and clean economic growth, promote inclusion and diversity, and create good middle class jobs and opportunities for our people while contributing to democracy, peace, and security at home and around the world.

“Congratulations President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on your historic inauguration.

President Biden, you and I have had a warm personal friendship going back many decades.

I look forward to working with you to further strengthen the US-Israel alliance, to continue expanding peace between Israel and the Arab world and to confront common challenges, chief among them the threat posed by Iran.

I wish you the greatest success.
God bless the United States of America. God bless Israel.

Israeli PM, Benjamin Netanyahu

On behalf of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, I congratulate Joe Biden on his inauguration as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris as the Vice President. Today is the start of a new chapter for the transatlantic Alliance.

The bond between North America and Europe is the bedrock of our security, and a strong NATO is good for both North America and Europe. For more than seventy years, our transatlantic Alliance has guaranteed freedom, peace, and security for our people. U.S. leadership remains essential as we work together to protect our democracies, our values and the rules-based international order.

NATO Allies need to stand together to address the security consequences of the rise of China, the threat of terrorism, including in Afghanistan and Iraq, and a more assertive Russia. None of us can face these challenges alone, but together in NATO, we represent one billion people, and half of the world’s military and economic might.

So I look forward to working closely with President Biden and welcoming him to the NATO Summit in Brussels later this year. Our focus will be NATO2030, the initiative to make our strong Alliance even stronger and fit for the future.

NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg

I wish President @JoeBiden & Vice President @KamalaHarris my very best, as they strive to heal their country & lead the American people out of the pandemic.

It’s time to bring back conviction & common sense and rejuvenate our EU-US relationship. ����
