WASHINGTON — This is a transcript of the overseas policy speech U.S. President Joe Biden sent at the State Division on Thursday.
Mr. Secretary, it is wonderful to be right here with you, and I have been searching forward a extended time to be ready to simply call you Mr. Secretary.
Superior afternoon, all people.
It truly is an honor to be back at the Point out Division under the eyes of the very first American chief diplomat, Benjamin Franklin, and by the way I want you all to know in the push I was the Benjamin Franklin professor of presidential politics at Penn.
And I considered they did that simply because I was as old as he was, but I guess not.
All kidding apart it is excellent to be listed here and stand together with our most current senior diplomat Secretary Tony Blinken.
Mr. Secretary thank you for
