Traditionally, the US State Department provides communication between the elected president and the heads of foreign states
The United States Department of State refuses to transmit messages from foreign leaders to Democratic candidate Joseph Biden, who won US elections. Such an order was given to the State Department by the Administration of the current American President Donald Trump.
This is reported by CNN with reference to sources.
As reported, traditionally, the US State Department provides communication between the elected president and the heads of foreign states, in connection with which many foreign leaders in recent days have sent their messages addressed to Biden to the US Foreign Ministry. The State Department has already accumulated several dozen such messages.
However, Trump has so far refused to admit his defeat in the elections and cut off possible contacts between representatives of his administration and Biden's team.
According to CNN, some foreign leaders are forced to turn to the services of diplomats who served during the presidency of Barack Obama, whose administration Joe Biden served as vice president, to establish ties with Biden.
Recall that President-elect of the United States Joe Biden considers it shameful for incumbent President Donald Trump's refusal to admit defeat in the elections, but the transition of power has already begun.
