Relations with the United States remain a cornerstone of the German foreign policy and the countries will continue dealing together with key global challenges after Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential elections, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier in the day, Trump won the US presidential elections despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Clinton. Trump got 276 electoral votes against Hillary Clinton's 218 votes out of 270 needed to win.

“Partnership with the United States is and remains the cornerstone of the German foreign policy. Through [this partnership] we can deal with main challenges of our time: striving for economic and social prosperity, outlooks for climate policy, fighting against terrorism, poverty, hunger and diseases, commitment to peace and freedom – in Germany, Europe and the world,” Merkel said.
