Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern congratulated the-now 46th United States President, Joe Biden, on his Inauguration at around 6:34 am NZT.
“I look forward to building a close relationship with President Biden and working with him on issues that matter to both our countries,” Jacinda Ardern said.
“New Zealand and the United States have shared interests in addressing global challenges including climate change, the COVID-19 economic recovery, and the security, prosperity and sustainability of the Indo-Pacific and Pacific Island regions.”
Ardern welcomed President Biden’s intentions for the United States to re-join the Paris Agreement that 45th President, Donald J. Trump, dropped out of. “I welcome President Biden’s intentions for the US to re-join the Paris Agreement and halt its withdrawal from the World Health Organisation,” Jacinda Ardern said.
“President Biden is a good friend of New Zealand, and we have fond memories of his 2016 visit to our shores. Under his presidency, the strong and close relationship that New Zealand enjoys with the United States will continue to develop and flourish.”
“President Biden’s message of unity as he takes office is one that resonates with New Zealanders and, on behalf of New Zealand, I wish him well as he begins his presidency,” Jacinda Ardern said.
