President praises confirmation of Biden victory
The Polish president's office on Thursday commended the US Congress's Wednesday for confirming Joe Biden as the 46th President of the US.
The office wrote that the confirmation of Biden as the next president showed the strength of US democracy and US institutions.
It also referred to Wednesday's riots by supporters of outgoing US President Donald Trump in the Capitol, observing that "democratic change took place at voting stations and not through aggressive street demonstrations."
On Wednesday the United States was rocked by the storming of the country’s Capitol building by Trump supporters. The rioting in Washington, which interrupted Congress's confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden's win in the November 3 election, claimed the lives of four people, and caused shock and outrage around the world.
