BBC News published this video item, entitled “World faces decisive decade says President Biden at UN – BBC News” – below is their description.

In his first address to the United Nations, US President Joe Biden has pledged cooperation with allies through “a decisive decade for our world”.

His reassurances come amid tensions over his country’s Afghanistan withdrawal and a major diplomatic row with France over a submarine deal.

“I believe we must work together like never before,” said the president.

The 76th General Assembly in New York City takes place against the backdrop of a climate crisis and a once-in-a-century pandemic, both of which have sharpened global divides.
