New presence: Multilateralism under US auspices: Joe Biden’s wondrous journey to Asia


    In the middle of the Ukraine war, US President Joe Biden made his first trip to Asia, making one thing clear: the US is ready to take on China and Russia. However, the US President also irritated during his trip.

    All in all, things went well for Joe Biden: dinner in a luxurious ambience, a toast here, a firm handshake there, plus lots of smiles, sometimes a hearty laugh or two – the photos after Biden’s trip to Asia testify to a successful first State visit to the Far East. But behind the friendly laughter is a clear message to those countries that dare, among other things, to undermine the integrity of other states.
