He has also announced that on this tour he will make it clear that “the United States has returned” and that “the world’s democracies are banding together to face the current challenges,” according to a White House statement.
“The United States is best placed to promote our national security and economic prosperity when we partner with like-minded nations to support us,” he said.

This Thursday, Biden will meet with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson near Cornwall where they are expected to sign a new Atlantic Charter, a new agreement to work together on global challenges.
The new Atlantic Charter will oblige Britain and the United States to use their resources to rebuild the world after the coronavirus and to find a way to stop climate change, according to the DPA agency.
The original Atlantic Charter was a joint declaration by Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt in 1941 that set British and American goals for the world after World War II.
Eighty years later, Johnson said the new deal would underscore that the two countries remain “closest partners and greatest allies.” “As Churchill and Roosevelt debated how we can help the world recover from a devastating war, we face a very different, but no less daunting, challenge today: how to better get out of the coronavirus pandemic can recover, ”he added.
At this meeting it is also planned to examine the improvement of economic relations and to discuss a bilateral technology agreement between the two nations.
From Friday, Biden will be at the G7 summit, where he will meet other European heads of state and government such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel. His visit to the UK ends on Sunday when he and First Lady Jill Biden are received by Queen Elizabeth II.
On Monday, Biden will take part in the NATO summit in Brussels, where a meeting with representatives of the European Union is planned for the following day, before he is long awaited with Putin on Wednesday in Geneva.
In his speech on Wednesday, Biden also warned his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, assuring him that Washington will “react vigorously” if the Moscow government “engages in harmful activities”.
