    US President-elect Joe Biden was earlier briefed by members of his national security and foreign policy agency review teams regarding potential key challenges that the incoming Biden-Harris administration is expected to face.

    Joe Biden is delivering remarks in the Delaware city of Wilmington on Monday after being briefed on US national security.

    Earlier, the president-elect named the recent cyberattack that targeted hundreds of US government institutions as "a grave national security threat", vowing to punish those behind it.

    Biden also outlined the coronavirus pandemic as one of the challenges his administration must face, pledging earlier in the month that his Cabinet will obtain 100 million COVID-19 vaccine shots in the first 100 days of his presidency.
