The White House is shrugging off concerns that the United Nations General Assembly will not have much political impact this year. President Joe Biden will deliver a speech this Tuesday to an audience that will be missing several key heads of state.

In his speech to the 78th UN General Assembly, Biden will “lay out to the world the steps he and his administration have taken to work with others to solve the world’s most serious challenges,” a senior official told reporters. of the administration.

“He will set out his vision for how countries, working within the framework of reformed and modernized international institutions, can build on their efforts to end conflict, uphold human rights and the rule of law, and help countries develop their economies.” “added the official.

Biden is also expected to touch on the “significant foreign policy successes” of his presidency, defending America’s role in the world ahead of the 2024 presidential campaign. As the president seeks a second term, there is some unease among world leaders on what that role might look like after next year’s elections.

Biden and Netanyahu will meet this Wednesday and, according to a senior official, “will discuss a series of bilateral and regional issues focused on the democratic values ​​shared between our two countries and a vision for a more stable, prosperous and integrated region, as well as compare notes on how to effectively counter and deter Iran.

But with the high-level absences of Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom – all permanent members of the UN Security Council – the Biden administration will be relegated to lower-level engagements with key allies and adversaries, all hoping to elevate America’s view on global infrastructure, food security, democratic values, and territorial sovereignty.
