The United States’ bilateral relations with China have cooled on various issues. Analysts fear that such a cold relationship between the two superpowers could start a new Cold War in the world. In such a situation, US President Joe Biden has said that his country does not want to be involved in a new war.
Biden made the remarks while addressing the 7th session of the UN General Assembly at the UN headquarters in New York on Tuesday.
Addressing world leaders, Biden said the United States stands ready to work with any country to find a peaceful solution to the emerging challenge, even in the face of disagreements over other issues. The United States will not engage in a new Cold War.
Biden has vowed to strengthen US influence in the world. But he has been widely criticized at home and abroad for returning empty-handed from two decades of Afghan war. Naturally, Biden’s remarks hinted at a post-Afghan war strategy.
In this regard, Joe Biden said that with the end of the Afghan war, the United States has entered a new era of tough diplomacy. If necessary, the United States will prepare to use force. However, the use of military force will be considered as the last resort.
Biden met with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres yesterday. Biden assured the UN Secretary-General of the possible cooperation and support of the United States in moving the world forward on the path of peace and prosperity.
In a brief speech during a meeting with the UN Secretary-General, President Biden said that epidemics and climate change have become major threats to world development, peace and security. The United States will stand by its promise to overcome this situation.
He is attending the UN General Assembly for the first time since taking over as US president. Meanwhile, Chinese President Xi Jinping is scheduled to address the UN General Assembly via video conference.
