'America is back' and ready for diplomacy: Biden

Team of professionals tasked with maintaining secure and prosperous Indo-Pacific

NEW YORK -- U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday debuted key members of his foreign policy and national security team, declaring a return to multilateralism and diplomacy led by experienced professionals as America's four-year experiment with President Donald Trump nears an end.

The new team "reflects the fact that America is back, ready to lead the world, not retreat from it," Biden told a news conference in Wilmington, Delaware -- "ready to confront our adversaries, and not reject our allies, ready to stand up for our values."
