In Pictures: President Biden’s Trip to Europe

-


President Biden, in his first presidential trip abroad, arrived in Europe on Wednesday with a daunting agenda: to reassure allies that the hostility of the Trump years was a momentary aberration in U.S. policy, coax them toward coordinated policies on Russia, China, climate change and the coronavirus, and then confront Vladimir V. Putin of Russia.

It would be a formidable set of challenges in the easiest of times. These are not those times.

Mr. Biden is fighting to pursue his domestic agenda, including a trillion-dollar infrastructure spending plan, with razor-thin Democratic control of Congress and determined Republican opposition. The United States is along the road to emerging from the pandemic and recession, but much of the world remains caught in their grip, and health experts warn that no country is safe from the coronavirus until every country is.

Mr. Biden traveled first to Cornwall, the southwestern tip of England, where the annual summit meeting of the Group of 7 large wealthy democracies is being held from Friday through Sunday. Since Thursday, he has also been holding one-on-one meetings with other G7 leaders, and on Sunday he will visit Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle. He will then meet with NATO officials and leaders from the European Union next week before finishing his whirlwind tour on Wednesday when he meets Mr. Putin in Geneva.
