Statement by Chargé d’Affaires a.i. Jon F. Danilowicz on Recent Events at the U.S. Capitol

The United States Congress has completed its Constitutionally mandated count of the Electoral College vote and affirmed the election of Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and Kamala D. Harris.  They will be sworn into office and a peaceful transfer of power will occur on January 20, 2021.  The criminals who committed violent acts of terror against our democracy on Wednesday will be held accountable in accordance with the rule of law in the United States.  The enduring friendship and partnership between the United States and the people of South Sudan will endure and thrive as we look ahead to the Biden-Harris Administration.
