Biden To Host Democracy Summit In December

Biden Recovers From COVID-19
United States President, Joe Biden

United States President, Joe Biden will host a virtual “Summit for Democracy” on December 9 and 10.

Gatekeepers News reports that those invited for the summit include heads of state, members of civil society, philanthropists, and representatives from the private sector, according to the White House’s announcement on Wednesday.

The summit will concentrate on three main themes: “defending against authoritarianism, fighting corruption, and promoting respect for human rights”.

The Biden administration intends to host a second summit of world leaders a year after the first, to “showcase progress made against their commitments”.

The White House, however, did not give details of the list of countries invited to the summit.

The summit is perceived by some as an alternative to the G20 forum and an implicit challenge to Beijing.

Members of the G20 are determined by economic weight and include the authoritarian governments of China and Saudi Arabia. The group is next set to meet at the end of October in Italy.

Biden has said that “the challenge of our time is to demonstrate that democracies can deliver by improving the lives of their own people and by addressing the greatest problems facing the wider world,” according to the White House statement on Wednesday.

Gatekeepers News reports that the US president has constantly indicated his desire to assume the role of “leader of the free world” traditionally assigned to the occupant of the White House, contrary to his predecessor Donald Trump, who insisted on an “America First” approach to world affairs.
