BIDEN: THE NUMBER OF PORTS IN THE GRAIN CORRIDOR SHOULD BE INCREASED
“No one threatens Russia. Russia, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, wanted to wipe out a sovereign state from the map by invading its neighbor. 183 countries in the United Nations condemn Russia’s war. We have provided more than $25 billion in aid to Ukraine. Fight as the United States.” We want it to end. Our sanctions are clearly aimed at Russia. However, they are not aimed at Russia’s food exports. We need to increase the number of ports in the grain corridor. The food problems in the world are Russia’s responsibility. We will continue to work on food security. We are all clear “We must be strong, we must be strong. Ukraine’s rights are the same as those of the remaining sovereign countries. We will stand against Russia’s aggression. There is a struggle between democracy and autocracies. Here we advocate a democracy-based view. Democracy is our most important goal.”
The US President also commented, “There is an open competition between us and China. We want peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. If Iran fulfills its responsibilities, we are ready for a solution as the United States. But we will not allow them to reach nuclear weapons.”
