China President Xi Jinping on Wednesday congratulated President-elect Joe Biden on winning the Nov. 3 election. 

"Promoting the healthy and stable development of China-U.S. relations is not only in the fundamental interests of both peoples, but also meets the common expectation of the international community," Xi told Xinhua News Agency.

"I hope to see both sides uphold the spirit of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect, and win-win cooperation, and focus on cooperation while managing and controlling disputes."

Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan also contacted Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and sent a congratulatory message. China's foreign ministry had congratulated Biden on Nov. 13.

"We respect the choice of the American people," Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said. "We congratulate Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris."

"At the same time, the result will be confirmed according to U.S. laws and procedures," the ministry added.

As Xi joins a growing list of world leaders to congratulate Biden, Russia President Vladimir Putin has yet to do so. 

“Anticipating your possible question about Putin congratulating the U.S. president-elect, I want to say the following: we consider it correct to wait for the official summing up of the results of the elections," Dmitry Peskov, a spokesperson for Putin, told reporters.

President Trump has yet to concede but did suggest that his team will start to work with Biden on a possible transition of power.  Trump also noted that he will continue to challenge the election and that he would “prevail.”
