Summary

President Biden is set to leave Brussels on Tuesday for Geneva, the last leg of a trip where he sought to mend fences with allies and take a tougher stance on Moscow and Beijing.President Biden on Tuesday announced a truce in a long-running trade war with the European Union, saying it was time to put aside the fight and focus together on the growing trade threats posed by China.His Brussels stop at EU headquarters was the latest part of his mission to mend ties with allies that were strained by the go-it-alone approach of his predecessor before he sits down with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva."I've been making the case that the U.S. and Europe — and democracies everywhere — are stronger when we work together to advance our shared values like fair competition and transparency. "for Europe, China is a really important trade and economic partner" so it's an accomplishment for President Biden "to have such tough statements about China in these 2 European summits" Heather Conley of @CSIS to @nickschifrin @NewsHourTrade deals are one of many areas the Biden administration needs to flesh out to be able to show gains from its approach to foreign policy.While Biden brought allies at the G-7, NATO and EU on board with the concept of taking a tougher stance on China, there are few details on how that will happen.There may have been convergence around the idea that "China is the challenge of our time, and that countries that are like-minded have to work together," said Bonnie Glaser, a China expert at the German Marshall Fund of the United States.But some European countries remain nervous that being too aggressive could backfire, hurting trade and investment with Beijing.
