Biden needs to re-establish foreign relations around the world

From First Up, 5:51 am on 9 November 2020

Joe Biden's win in the US Presidential election provides an opportunity for the country to rebuild relationships both domestically and abroad. President Donald Trump's tenure has been marred by scrapes with many of the USA's closest allies, and an apparent fondness for adversaries like North Korea and Russia. Joe Biden is expected to do away with Trump's America-first nationalism and to pursue more traditional foreign policy, including re-signing the Paris climate agreement as soon as he enters office, and re-joining the World Health Organisation. Intelligence and defence analyst Paul Buchanan from the consultancy 36th Parallel joins Nathan Rarere to discuss how Joe Biden's victory will be received around the world.
