Morrison called the president-elect from Canberra on Thursday morning.

“There are no greater friends and no greater allies than Australia and the US,” he said after the telephone conversation.

“I look forward to strengthening even further our deep and enduring alliance, and to working with him closely as we face the world’s many challenges together.

“We look forward to celebrating the 70th anniversary of ANZUS next year.”

Biden is due to be inaugurated on January 20, but President Donald Trump is still refusing to concede defeat after continuing with baseless claims of voter fraud.
