    US President Joe Biden opened the first overseas trip of his term Wednesday, arriving in Britain with a declaration that the “United States is back.”

    Biden, keen to repair relations with European allies that were shaken by his predecessor Donald Trump, is beginning his tour in the UK, where he was scheduled to meet Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday.

    Most pressing among the challenges facing the US and its allies is the coronavirus pandemic, with Biden promising that the US would also lead on this matter. “We have to end COVID-19 not just at home — which we’re doing — but everywhere,” Biden said. According to US media reports, the Biden administration is set to buy 500 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for international distribution.
