Russia’s war against Ukraine is inflection point in world history – White House
The US President believes that current events in the world, in particular Russia's war against Ukraine, are part of a turning point in history when it is necessary to strengthen alliances and relations with partners
John Kirby, coordinator of the White House National Security Council, said this during a conversation with journalists.
"The President describes this time that we’re living in as an inflection point, and he’s right. I mean, you look all around the world, and one of the things that’s a common thread is democracy under threat," he said.
Kirby thus answered the question of how the Biden administration could characterize US foreign policy at the current stage, including the situation in Ukraine and the Gaza Strip.
The White House spokesperson clarified that threats to democracy have different characteristics.
"The President believes in a foreign policy that bolsters our allies and partners, that builds on alliances and partnerships, that recognizes that the United States can’t do it all alone, but that our leadership is vital and important to solving some of these problems," Kirby said.
In this context, he expressed confidence that the United States' foreign policy will remain active, as it has been during the previous three years of the Biden administration.
