United States president Joe Biden on Thursday contacted Chilean president-elect Gabriel Boric to congratulate him on his electoral victory on 21 December and to talk about future collaboration and cooperation between the two countries.

Boric who is spending Christmas and New Year with his family in Punta Arenas made public the contact in twitter saying that “I have just received a call from the President of the United States, Joe Biden. Besides sharing the joy of our respective electoral triumphs we talked about common challenges such as fair trade, the climate crisis and strengthening democracy. We agreed to continue our discussions”

From Washington, a White House release stated that, “President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. called President-elect Gabriel Boric of Chile today to congratulate him on his election victory. The President applauded Chile’s free and fair elections as a powerful example to the region and the world”.

Further on “the two leaders discussed their shared commitment to social justice, democracy, human rights, and inclusive growth. President Biden underscored the importance of U.S.-Chile cooperation to promote a green and equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and to address the existential threat posed by climate change. On behalf of the United States, the President also offered his deep condolences to the people of Chile for the tragic death of Valentina Orellana-Peralta”, who was killed by a stray bullet during a police shootout.

    “There is no light at the end of the tunnel having this 79-year-old man as president.”

    I guess the majority of voters were sufficiently leery of a guy with following pedigree.

    I’ll let S B 4 and the rest of the MercoPress readership make their own conclusions how Skippy could of served the RAF during 1962 — yet his biography cites he was born in 1977 in Utah…

    Meanwhile, we’re enjoying the pleasant weather here and looking forward to our family Sunday luncheon.

    “Skippy Jessop continues his fantasy serving in the RAF the during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 — yet we know for a fact he was born in 1977 in Utah.”

    Thanks here’s the confirmation of myself, and yourself.
    Here it is again. I am a bona fide, cold war warrior from the Cuban Missile Crisis, which is eminently provable.

    A picture is worth a thousand words.

    It involves only your very own obsessed muse Skippy, and your personal fabrication. The one whom you claim was born in 1977, tad difficult for him to have been in the RAF in 1963.
