Republican Donald Trump, Biden’s predecessor, was a harsh critic of the United Nations and advocated the U.S. increasingly going it alone.

Biden, on the other hand, has relied increasingly on multilateralism and working together with other countries.

The Democrat has been in office since Jan. 20.

According to German News Agency, dpa, more than 80 countries are expected to speak in person in New York, in contrast to 2020, when the General Assembly was largely conducted in a virtual format.

The coronavirus pandemic, including the issue of vaccinations, and climate change are among the key topics expected to be discussed at this year’s General Assembly. (dpa)
