Mexico City: Argentine President Alberto Fernandez has condemned violence fueled by supporters of US President Donald Trump at the US Capitol building and expressed his support for President-elect Joe Biden.
“We condemn the serious acts of violence and attack on Congress that took place in Washington today. We are confident that a peaceful transfer of power will take place with respect for the will of the people, and we express our strong support for President-elect Joe Biden,” Fernandez tweeted.
Earlier pro-Trump protesters stormed the US Capitol building, destroying property and seizing the rotunda room, as Congress was trying to certify the results of Biden’s presidential victory.
Several foreign leaders and top diplomats, including Indian PM Narendra Modi, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, have condemned the violence in Washington.
