    Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday sent a congratulatory telegram to US President-elect Donald Trump, the Xinhua news agency reported.

    BEIJING (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.

    "I attach great significance to Chinese-US relations, and expect that we will, jointly with you, stick to the principle of prevention of confrontation, mutual respect, mutually beneficial cooperation," the agency quoted Xi's telegram to Trump.
