The president stressed that, to face new challenges, international institutions and approaches “must be updated to keep pace with the world.”
The President of the United States, Joe Biden, speaks this Tuesday in the debate of the 78th Regular Session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly, which is being held in New York.
The tenant of the White House highlighted the importance of international cooperation to face global challenges. “America seeks a safer, more prosperous and more equitable world for all people,” he declared.
As part of his speech, the president highlighted that, to face new challenges, international institutions and approaches “must be updated to keep pace with the world.” “This starts with the United Nations, it starts here, in this room,” Biden said, recalling that last year he announced that Washington will support the expansion of the UN Security Council and the increase in permanent and non-permanent members.
On the eve of the event, White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby noted that Biden will propose reforming the UN Security Council during his speech.
The senior official assured that the US president will ask the 193 UN member states to “take a look at the architecture of the Security Council.” “We think it needs to be more inclusive and broader,” Kirby said.
