During the meeting, Biden reaffirmed the US commitment to “values-based global leadership and re-engagement with international institutions,” especially the United Nations.
“The President reiterated the importance of working with global partners and through multilateral institutions to end the pandemic, improve global health security, and ensure that our nations drive an equitable and sustainable economic recovery,” the statement noted.
The US leader also expressed the country's intention to formally join the UN Group of Friends on Climate and Security.
