No country in the world has such a network of alliances and partnerships as the United States, according to a joint article by Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
The United States, in its foreign policy under the Joe Biden administration, will rely on diplomacy and a network of alliances around the world while at the same time strengthening its military, which is a “key source” of its strength. This is stated in a joint article published in The Washington Post by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.
“Our alliances are what our military calls “force multipliers.” We can achieve much more with them than we could without them. No country in the world has such a network of alliances and partnerships as ours. It would be a huge strategic mistake to neglect these alliances,”the ministers said.
“As President [Joe] Biden said, the United States will exercise leadership through diplomacy, as it is the most effective way to meet the challenges we face today,” they said. “At the same time, we will support the most powerful armed forces in the world because this is a key source of strength for our country and our collective (with allies) forces,” the heads of the two American ministries believe.
“We will work hard to renew our alliances and make sure that they are fit for purpose – to deal with the threats and take advantage of the opportunities of our time,” they added.
