His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani yesterday sent cables of congratulations to the newly sworn in US President Joe Biden.

Biden becomes the 46th President of the US following his inauguration at the US Capitol yesterday.

He took the presidential oath of office administered by US Chief Justice John Roberts just after noon ET (17:00 GMT), pledging to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

The 78-year-old Democrat became the oldest US President in history after defeating President Donald Trump in the 2020 US presidential elections.

While congratulating the new US President, HH Qatar's Amir wished him success in his duties and hoped for further growth and development in the US-Qatar bond through enhanced strategic cooperation. 

In a tweet, HH the Amir congratulated Joe Biden for becoming the US President and Kamala Harris for becoming the Vice President of the US. 

"I wish you both continued success, and look forward to progressing Qatar-U.S. friendly relations to new heights," HH the Amir said.

Qatar's Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani also sent a cable of congratulations to President Joe Biden on the occasion of him taking the oath as the President of the US.
