Speaking at Vilnius University, US President Joe Biden said that “NATO is stronger, more active, and more united than ever.” He says that the hopes of Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2022 that NATO will “collapse” have not been fulfilled. Putin thought democratic leaders were weak. But he was wrong. Biden said Putin has a “cowardly desire” to accumulate territory and power.
In the speech Biden delivered after the two-day NATO summit in the Lithuanian capital, he said the world’s “fate of democracy” was at stake in the coming years. According to him, the way the United States and its allies act will be decisive. Talk about challenges like the climate crisis and the global economy. “We can only get this to a successful conclusion if we work together.”
The US President’s speech was attended by nearly 10,000 people. Political analysts view the performance as an election moment in the run-up to the 2024 US presidential election. Biden would like to present himself as an assertive leader with extensive foreign policy experience.
