Biden returns to the international stage
President Biden spoke on Friday of struggles for democracy and the importance of building close alliances with foreign leaders.
The last time I spoke in Munich, I was a private citizen. I was a professor, not elected, but I said at that time that we will be back. And I’m a man of my word – America is back. I speak to you today as President of the United States at the very beginning of my administration, and I send a clear message to the world: America is back, the transatlantic alliance is back and we are not watching backward. We wait together. Global dynamics have changed. New crises demand our attention. We cannot focus only on the competition between countries which threaten to divide the world or only on the global challenges which threaten to engulf us all together if we do not cooperate. We need to do both, working together with our allies and partners. So let me clear up any lingering doubt. The United States will work closely with our partners in the European Union and the capitals of the continent.
