Message from the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, to the President-elect of the United States of America, Biden

The President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, has sent the following message to the President-elect of the United States of America, Joe Biden:

“On behalf of the whole Italian Republic, I would like to express my warmest congratulations on your election as President of the United States of America.

As a result of a remarkable participation, the American people have entrusted you with the term in office to lead the United States of America throughout a dramatically complex moment for the entire world.

The international community needs the support of the United States, which has long played a leading role in building the rules of multilateralism, to deal with an unprecedented crisis that is endangering the health, life and future of millions of people.

I am sure that under your Presidency, the United States and Italy – and the entire European Union – will be able to further strengthen the bonds of deep and deep-rooted friendship, in the name of the common values of freedom, justice, democracy, which unite them.

Such affinity becomes stronger in every field, both bilateral and multilateral, through a multifaceted collaboration – favored also by the extraordinary work of the large community of Italian origin – and aimed at promoting the values of international security and stability, economic development and social progress, in a truly transatlantic perspective.

I hope that the forthcoming Italian Presidency of the G20 can actually represent a further opportunity for the development of cooperation between Washington and Rome.

Waiting to meet you, and still in the pleasant memory of our breakfast on the occasion of my first visit to Washington as Head of State, I send you and your family my warmest wishes for a fruitful performance of your Term in Office”.

Rome, 11/07/2020
