On the evening of the 6th local time, leaders of EU institutions expressed their views on social media on the protest riots in the U.S. Capitol.
European Council President Michelle said it was shocking to see this scene in Washington and believed that the United States could achieve a peaceful transfer of power.
Borelli, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, said that in the eyes of the world, American democracy is under siege, which is an unprecedented attack on American democratic institutions and the rule of law.
Borelli also said that this is not what the United States should be like, and the results of the U.S. election must be fully respected.
The Speaker of the European Parliament, Sassoli, also believes that the scene of the U.S. Capitol is deeply worrying and the results of the democratic vote must be respected.
