At UN General Assembly, Biden asks world to stand with Ukraine

U.S. President Joe Biden delivered a speech at the U.N. General Assembly, urging world leaders to support Ukraine against Russian aggression. He emphasized the importance of Ukraine’s independence and called on Russia to end the war immediately. Biden’s address was the highlight of his visit to New York, where he also met with leaders from Central Asian nations, Israel, and Brazil. The president has made rallying U.S. allies to support Ukraine a key part of his foreign policy, despite facing criticism from some Republicans who want to reduce spending on the war effort. Former President Donald Trump, a Republican candidate for the 2024 presidential election, has promised a quick end to the war if he returns to power. Trump has expressed skepticism about engaging with traditional allies and has praised Russian President Vladimir Putin. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, a leading Republican, has questioned the continued provision of weaponry to Ukraine. In his speech, Biden condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, stating that it violated the U.N. Charter’s principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also criticized Russia’s actions, describing them as unleashing a nexus of horror. Apart from Ukraine, Biden and U.S. officials will focus on mobilizing resources for infrastructure, sustainable development, and combating climate change during the U.N. meetings. A majority of Americans support providing military aid to Ukraine, viewing it as a demonstration of U.S. commitment to protecting its interests and allies. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy attended Biden’s speech and is expected to visit the White House and meet with congressional leaders. The United States is preparing a new military aid package for Ukraine, and Congress has been asked to approve additional security assistance. Biden will also meet with Guterres to discuss global issues and participate in a summit with the presidents of five Central Asian nations. He will meet with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss regional stability, prosperity, and countering Iran.
