Andrey Piontkovsky, a political analyst, highlighted that Biden has designated Ukraine and Israel as the primary allies of the United States

He made this observation during an interview with Espreso TV.

"In his significant speech, Biden painted a global picture—a battle between the forces of good and the forces of absolute evil, represented by the axis of evil—Iran, Russia, and China. Iran aims to harm Israel, Russia aims to harm Ukraine, and China seeks to impact Taiwan. The goals of these countries are aligned. Biden began with the words 'Putin and Hamas,' and this phrase recurred throughout his speech. He also emphasized our support for our ‘critical partners, Israel and Ukraine.’ In essence, this signifies that Israel and Ukraine are US primary allies. This is Ukraine's new status," Piontkovsky stressed.

The political expert noted that Ukraine has long sought a status similar to what Israel holds.

"Israel enjoys the status of a Major Non-NATO Ally of the USA, denoting it as the primary US ally outside of NATO. Ukraine has aspired to this status for a considerable time, and in essence, Biden has conferred it. By this political statement but also by the aid that was pledged to Ukraine. Moreover, it involves the removal of longstanding restrictions and taboos that the Americans had imposed on themselves. This includes the supply of weapons, such as ATACMS and F-16 fighter jets. The deployment of ATACMS on the Ukrainian battlefield proceeded successfully," Piontkovsky emphasized.

  • China’s leader, Xi Jinping, mentioned that the future of humanity hinges on whether China and the US can establish mutual understanding. He expressed hope that the National Committee on US-China Relations will continue to support China-US relations and contribute constructively to fostering a healthy and stable relationship between the two countries.

  • The US and China have reached an agreement to jointly arrange a meeting between their leaders, Joe Biden and Xi Jinping.
