Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on Sunday released the following statement on the win of U.S. president-elect Joe Biden:

On behalf of the Filipino nation, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte wishes to extend his warm congratulations to former Vice President Joseph "Joe" Biden on his election as the new President of the United States of America.

The Philippines and the United States have long-standing bilateral relations and we are committed to further enhancing the relations with the United States under the Biden administration.

We look forward to working closely with the new administration of President-elect Biden anchored on mutual respect, mutual benefit, and shared commitment to democracy, freedom and the rule of law.

Congratulations and we wish him all the best.

Biden defeated incumbent Donald Trump in a bitterly fought election that was followed by a slow cnavassing due to COVID-19 restrictions.
