Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Reaffirms NATO Commitment, Talks Russia, China Challenges With Stoltenberg” – below is their description.
President Joe Biden sought to reassure U.S. allies by emphasizing Washington’s commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, calling a strong alliance “essential for America” as he turned the page on a period when Donald Trump questioned its value.
At a NATO summit in Brussels Monday, leaders will tout “a new chapter in transatlantic relations,” according to a draft of the meeting’s conclusions seen by Bloomberg. They’ll also discuss defense priorities such as China, an increasingly hostile Russia and the threats posed by climate change.
Upon his arrival at NATO headquarters, Biden paid fulsome tribute to both the alliance and Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. Biden interrupted Stoltenberg, who was speaking of the need for a strong NATO, to say this was “very good for America, essential for America.”
“NATO is critically important to U.S. interests,” Biden said, adding that he viewed the organization’s mutual defense guarantee as a “sacred obligation.”
“I just want all of Europe to know the United States is there. The United States is there.”Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
