German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was “angry and saddened” by the violent attacks on the US Congress.

“I deeply regret that President Trump has not conceded his defeat, since November and again yesterday,” she told German MPs at a meeting.

“Doubts over the election outcome have been stoked and that created an atmosphere which made last night’s events possible.”

She welcomed President-elect Joe Biden’s statement and the fact Congress continued to certify his presidency, saying his inauguration should “open a new chapter” in America’s democracy.

“That means the forces of democracy have prevailed,” she said. “That is something I always knew about the United States and expected.”
