US President Joe Biden delivered his first foreign policy address stressing on the need to lead with diplomacy while restoring ties with democratic allies and engaging with adversaries.

He struck a tough tone with Russia saying that days of rolling over to Russian aggression are over. He took a similar line with China, emphasising that the United States will confront China's economic and human rights abuses.
