US President Joe Biden has posted a video of his conversation with NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg, in which he says he wants to rebuild the alliance.
Biden also used the conversation to praise Stoltenberg for his role in maintaining NATO in recent years.
“I want to thank you for your leadership and your personal diplomacy over the last few years. You have been invaluable,” the newly installed US president said.
Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump was very NATO-skeptical. He called the alliance outdated in his 2016 election campaign.
“I want to rebuild and re-establish our alliances, and I want to start with NATO. As you know from before, I very much support our common defense, based on common democratic values,” Biden said during the phone call.
