United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon congratulated US President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday, one day after the stunning defeat of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton who was heavily favored to win in the race for the White House.

"I congratulate Mr. Donald Trump on his election, as 45th president of the United States of America," Ban said at the international body's headquarters in New York.

"In the aftermath of hard fought and often divisive campaign it is worth recalling and reaffirming that unity in diversity of the United States is one of the country's greatest strengths. I encourage all Americans to stay true to that spirit," he added.
