China's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin on Friday extended congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, adding China respects the choice of the American people.  

"China has been following U.S. domestic and international reactions to the U.S. presidential election," Wang told a daily press briefing.

"We understand that the outcome of the U.S. elections will be determined in accordance with U.S. laws and procedures," Wang added.

It's been more than a week since the U.S. presidential election, and the U.S. media has projected Democratic candidate Joe Biden as the winner.  

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump continues to contest the election results with legal challenges, federal roadblocks and unfounded claims on social media.
