MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Republican presidential nominee Trump won the US presidency despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton.
"The victory of Mr Trump shows that the democratic system in the U.S. works. Even though a lot of media outlets in the States and all over the world wished otherwise the American people decided and elected Donald Trump as their next leader. That’s how it works. I am very confident that our American partners will continue and in some cases improve their efforts to uphold the core principles of human rights, democracy and the rule of law," Zech said on Wednesday.
