President-elect Joe Biden intends to make significant efforts to return the United States to its efforts to reach an understanding with its allies.

He intends to work for the return of the country to a joint agreement between the West, Iran and Russia on Iran's nuclear program, but does not envisage significant changes in US policy towards China. Biden stated this in an interview with The New York Times.

He said it would be difficult for the United States to return to the Iran deal which Washington signed in 2018, but Democrats support it.

According to him, the future US administration plans to participate in negotiations with allies and partners and formulate additional agreements which will work out and extend the limitations of Iran's nuclear program, as well as refer to Tehran’s missile program.

At the same time, Biden noted that the agreement which would oversee Tehran's nuclear development is the best tool for ensuring stability in the region. Otherwise, the Democrat is convinced that we should be wary of the situation when Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Egypt, and other countries in the region would want to develop nuclear weapons.

Biden has no plans yet to change the US policy pursued by the administration of incumbent President Donald Trump towards China.

In particular, the President-elect said for now he wanted to keep in force the 25-percent tariff that the Trump administration has imposed on nearly half of China's exports to the United States.

Biden made it clear that he first intends to assess the effectiveness and expediency of these measures, and only then make a decision on them.

Biden said in his policy on US trade with China he would focus on making progress in eliminating China's unscrupulous behavior.
