U.S. President Joe Biden meets with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres

President Joe Biden of the U.S on Monday in New York met with United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres at the 76th session of the U.N. General Assembly.

In his first appearance as head of state at the United Nations General Assembly, Biden will promote his multilateralist, diplomacy-focused worldview, administration officials said.

It’s an important and consequential week for President Biden and his leadership on the world stage and driving forward some critical priorities for America’s national security and for the broader peace and prosperity of the world,” a senior administration official told journalists on Monday.

The VOA reports that the stance is in direct contrast to the “America First” doctrine of his predecessor, Donald Trump.

The annual event is an opportunity for the 193-member assembly to discuss challenges of regional and global importance.

Biden traveled to New York on Monday evening for the in-person meeting of about 100 heads of state at U.N. headquarters, where he will meet on the sidelines with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and meet in Washington with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Last week, the three nations announced a security pact that would provide American nuclear submarine technology and British naval expertise to Australia to help the country counter threats in the Indo-Pacific region.

Analysts widely see the move as an attempt to counter China’s growing influence in the region.
