Asserting that America and its diplomacy are back, US President Joe Biden on Thursday said his administration will repair the connection with allies and have interaction with the planet once more .
"We will repair our alliances and engage with the world once again, not to meet yesterday's challenges, but today's and tomorrow's. American leadership must meet this new moment of advancing authoritarianism, including the growing ambitions of China to rival the United states and the determination of Russia to damage and disrupt our democracy," Biden said in his remarks to State Department employees.
The US, he said, must meet the new moment accelerating global challenges -- from the pandemic to the climate crisis to nuclear proliferation -- challenging the will only to be solved by nations working together and in common. "We cannot do it alone," he said.
"We must start with diplomacy rooted in America's most cherished democratic values: defending freedom, championing opportunity, upholding universal rights, respecting the rule of law and treating every person with dignity. that is the grounding wire of our global power. that is our inexhaustible source of strength. that is America's abiding advantage.
"Though many of these values have come under intense pressure in recent years, even pushed to the brink in the last few weeks, the American people are going to emerge from this moment stronger, more determined and better equipped to unite the world in fighting to defend democracy, because we have fought for it ourselves," Biden said.
In his maiden address to the employees of the State Department, the president said he has come to the building to send a clear message to the world: America is back. America is back. Diplomacy is back.
"You are the centre of all that I intend to do. you are the heart of it. We are going to rebuild our alliances. We are going to re-engage with the world and take on the enormous challenge we face dealing with a pandemic, dealing with global warming and again, standing up for democracy and human rights," he said.
Biden said his administration will work with partners to support restoration of democracy and the rule of law, and impose consequences on those responsible.
"Over the past two weeks, I have spoken with the leaders of many of our closest friends -- Canada, Mexico, the UK, Germany, France, NATO, Japan, South Korea , Australia -- to begin reforming the habits of cooperation and rebuilding the muscle of democratic alliances that have atrophied over the past few years of neglect and, i would argue, abuse," he said.
America's alliances, he asserted, are its greatest asset and leading with diplomacy means standing shoulder-to-shoulder with US allies and key partners once again.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
