US President Joe Biden spoke at the opening of the United Nations General Assembly in New York City this morning (Tuesday).

In his remarks, Biden called on the international community to provide greater support for Ukraine as it continues to face Russia's invasion of its territory.

“Russia believes that the world will grow weary and allow it to brutalize Ukraine without consequence," Biden said. "But I ask you this: If we abandon the core principles of the UN Charter to appease an aggressor, can any member state feel confident that they are protected? If we allow Ukraine to be carved up, is the independence of any nation secure?"

“The answer is no. We must stand up to this naked aggression today to deter other would-be aggressors tomorrow.

“That is why the United States together with our Allies and partners around the world will continue to stand with the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their sovereignty and territorial integrity – and their freedom,” President Biden said.

He further stated that the US under his leadership remains "steadfast in our commitment that Iran must never acquire a nuclear weapon."

Biden praised the efforts to build an economic corridor between India, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Israel, and the European Union, saying that this project "demonstrates how Israel's greater normalization and economic connection with its neighbors is delivering positive and practical impacts even as we continue to work tirelessly to support a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians."
