Biden speaks at the UN General Assembly
The American President spoke at the UN General Assembly, outlining future challenges for the United States and the world.
US President Joe Biden announced the end of the era of “ruthless wars.” Speaking at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, September 21, he announced the beginning of an era of “ruthless diplomacy” after the withdrawal of the American contingent from Afghanistan.
“This is an urgent choice we face at the dawn of what should be a decisive decade for our world, a decade that will literally define our future. As a global community, we face urgent and looming crises and tremendous opportunities lie ahead.” – said Biden.
“Twenty years of conflict in Afghanistan are over. And when we close this period of war, we open an era of relentless diplomacy, where we will use the power of our aid to develop and renew democracy,” Biden said.
According to him, the United States should use the armed forces on the world stage only in extreme cases: “the army should be the last, not the first, instrument for solving problems.”
He noted that not all problems in the world can be solved with the help of force. “Bombs and bullets will not save us from COVID-19 and from its future strains,” the American president said.
Biden believes that humanity has reached a turning point in its history and that it faces a number of key challenges.
“Instead of continuing to fight the wars of the past, we are paying close attention and allocating our resources to the challenges on which our collective future depends,” he said.
In particular, he named among the problems the end of the pandemic, the solution of the climate crisis, the elimination of cyber threats, the fight against terrorism, the prevention of conflicts.
“We need to work with each other more than ever before,” the US President said.
He added that the United States does not seek to unleash a new Cold War and does not want to see the world split into “hard blocs.” The United States is fully prepared to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran, and they expect the same from Tehran.
The United States is seeking a “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula, “concrete progress” and “tangible commitments” in this area. The United States is committed to “serious and sustained” diplomatic work to resolve the DPRK’s nuclear development problem, Biden assures.
UN Secretary General António Guterres spoke to Biden, who stated that humanity in its entire history has never was not in such danger as it is now.
