Political positions of Joe Biden
The Biden administration should continue to send clear signals to Turkey through NATO channels that it cannot use force or harassment to extract territorial concessions
President Joe Biden promised to show the world that democracies can work to meet the challenges of the 21st century. As he prepares to push that message at a pair of global summits, his case could hinge on what's happening in Washington, where he was struggling to finalize a major domestic legislative package.
It is also said that "if Albin Kurti is not interested in the Washington agreement, then that agreement is dead."
As Bolton points out, the important question is what attitude the Biden administration will take towards the Balkans in relation to Trump, but also that Washington is currently dealing more with domestic issues than with foreign policy.
"I'm sorry I'm not with you live, but I take this opportunity to say that the United States supports the Three Seas initiative. I thank President Radev and Minister Petkov for hosting this summit," US President Joe Biden said in a video to the participants in the "Three Seas" initiative on July 8.
"With incredible potential to improve the prosperity of this region."
The United States on June 17 hailed a commitment by Turkey to secure Kabul's airport, addressing one key area of concern amid fears the government will collapse once U.S. forces leave.
The agreement is likely to mark a new warming of U.S. relations with Turkey, a NATO ally whose relations had been fraught with President Joe Biden's five-month-old administration.
There was no talk of gazing into Vladimir Putin's "soul" and the Russian president didn't try to gaslight a rookie U.S. leader.
Instead, Putin's first summit with the fifth U.S. president of his tenure, Joe Biden, was about mutual respect - and the meeting in Geneva could, both of them said, lead to a more predictable, if still tense, relationship.
