At the start of the annual general debate of the 193 UN countries, American President Joe Biden gave a powerful speech. But it must have left a stale aftertaste with many of his allies. Biden admittedly acknowledged multilateral cooperation at the UN General Assembly in New York and called on the states to solve the problems of the global community together.

Biden also avoided asserting an American leadership claim – and he emphasized that his country was not aiming for a new Cold War with China. But with many of his foreign policy decisions in recent weeks, Biden speaks a completely different language.

It’s all about China

The US President did not see the need to consult close allies like France before withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, even before establishing the new military alliance with Australia and Britain. With these decisions, Joe Biden is signaling that he wants to use his own strength to fight with China – for a new Cold War.

Biden expects allies to side with the United States without any ifs or buts. But especially in Europe, governments like to keep as many doors open as possible. The US has not yet managed to whet the appetite of its new allies in Europe.
