Biden: Russia's war against Ukraine is part of a turning point in history
U.S. President Joe Biden believes that military confrontations around the world are part of a turning point in history. The US president believes that the Russian-Ukrainian war is among them.
Biden also believes that democracy around the world is under threat. This was stated by White House National Security Council Coordinator John Kirby in response to a question about the Biden administration's foreign policy.
According to him, democracy is under threat in different parts of the world. This is the opinion of the White House regarding the situation in the Middle East and Russia's war against Ukraine.
"The president describes the current time we are living in as a turning point, and he is right. I mean, you look around the world, and one of the things that unites them is that democracy is under threat. And it is threatened in different ways," Kirby said.
At the same time, he emphasized that Biden believes in a US foreign policy that supports allies and partners around the world. Kirby said that the United States cannot do it all alone, but added that American leadership is vital to solving problems.
"What you're going to see this year is what you've seen over the last three years from President Biden. It's a very active foreign policy built on relationships - improving the relationships we need, trying to solve problems through cooperation and multilateralism," the White House official said.
Earlier it was reported that representatives of the Republican and Democratic parties in the United States reached an agreement on the controversial issue of the country's migration policy, which will unblock aid to Ukraine. The text of the agreement may be published soon.
As a reminder, Biden called on Congress to approve aid to Ukraine. According to the U.S. president, "it's time to act", as the decision will bring the United States closer to protecting important national priorities.
