President Joe Biden addressed the UN General Assembly in New York Wednesday morning, where he highlighted US efforts to strengthen global food security, replenish the Global Fund to fight AIDS and other pandemics, tackle supply chain issues and the climate crisis.

In his speech, Biden also focused on Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.
