NEW YORK -- U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday laid out his immediate vision for America's role in the world, where the challenge of "an increasingly assertive China" is front and center, as his administration works to develop a long-term strategy.

The 24-page interim national security strategic guidance, which mentions China and its government some 20 times, "lays out the global landscape as the Biden administration sees it, explains the priorities of our foreign policy and specifically how we will renew America's strength to meet the challenges and seize the opportunities of our time," U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said hours before the report's release.
