Biden called for strengthening the policy of deterrence in Europe

US President Joe Biden at a summit with NATO allies from Eastern Europe supported “strengthening deterrence” on the continent, his press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters.

“He expressed support for strengthening NATO’s defense and deterrent positions,” Psaki said at a briefing.

She mentioned NATO’s “strategic rivals” that should be contained, but did not mention Russia and China, which are usually cited in this context.

“He emphasized a commitment to rebuilding alliances and strengthening transatlantic relations and conveyed a desire to work with our nine allies in Central Europe, the Baltic States on a full range of global issues, including health security, climate change, energy security, and economic recovery,” Psaki said. The” Bucharest Nine,” with which Biden spoke, includes the countries of the former bloc of socialist countries-Bulgaria, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Estonia.
