What Does A Biden Presidency Mean To US Foreign Relations?

"Might Joe Biden's presidency mean for US foreign policy with us, now three of NPR's international correspondents in some of the regions that are most consequential to the United States? NPR's Emily Fang is in Beijing. Lucien Kim is in Moscow and Jane Arraf is in Erbil, Iraq. Hello to you all. Good morning. Morning. So, Emily, let's start with you. The relationship between the U. S and China right now is quite tense. How was news of of President Elect Biden's win received in Beijing. Well, there wasn't much news because two days after the election results were called noticeably Absent is any official reaction from China's leader, She Jingping, He's not put up a message. By contrast in 2016. She congratulated Trump hours after the race was called this year. Foreign Ministry has dodged every question we've had for comment on their views about the election, and the silence is not because China prefers bite in over Trump, Trump of replied, And it's more out of an over abundance of caution because Trump has not officially conceded. Seven China's view It does not want to take a side if you will, and until someone is definitively inaugurated, and Trump still has more than two months left in office so he could put significant pressure on China. Still, if he's provoked Okay, So China's taking a wait and see approach Lucy and there was all of this concern about Russian potential Russian interference in this election. We didn't see much of that. How is Moscow, reacting to the prospect of a Biden presidency? Well, it's interesting. It's very similar to the situation in Beijing here. The absence of any congratulations from President Vladimir Putin has been noticeable today. His spokesman told reporters that Putin will wait for official results because Trump has not conceded and wants to dispute the the count in the courts. One prominent Russian who did congratulate Biden, his opposition leader, Alexei Navalny. He's recovering from a poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. The day after the U. S election. Navalny went on social media to say that the suspense about who Would eventually when the race was evidence that America's elections are real, but officially on state TV. The main message is that this election was marred by irregularities and fraud. So in a sense, not that different from Russian elections and the messier the transition of power is in the US, the better it is for the Kremlin because the US stops looking like a model democracy. Well, that's interesting. Jane, China and Russia both taking a wait and see approach did Iraqi leadership say anything this weekend? They did. They generally welcomed Biden's election. And, you know, there's not expected to be really a dramatic or immediate change in policy. One of the big issues here is withdrawal of US troops and Biden like Trump is in favor of those, But I gotta be honest Officials here are breathing a sigh of relief. You know, one of them put it. Will no longer be one tweet away from learning of major foreign policy decisions. And then there's the fact that Biden you Noah's head of a CZ, a member of the leading member, ranking member of the Of Senate Foreign Relations Committee and then the point man on Iraq. For then President Obama knows the leaders here and he knows them well, and that will make a difference. I spoke to one senior Iraqi official who said he's dealt with them in years for years. Sorry, and and the thing that stands out is Biden's essential decency, he says. Decency. OK, Lucien Joe Biden known for his decency, Yes, but unlike President Trump, he does not seem primed to like Vladimir Putin or to soft pedal things with Russia. How might his election change the U. S Russia relationship? All right. There is no expectation here at all that Biden will be easier on Russia. I spoke to one of Russia's leading foreign policy experts fielder Lukianoff about what he expects from a Biden presidency. They don't think that many people at Moscow believed that the U. S will be able to be back to the old good days of liberal order as it was in 90 Sorento Seldon's, But the rhetoric will be ah, muchmore like Obama or even Clinton spirit. So in other words, the expectation in Moscow is that Biden will bring up human rights and democracy and also take a greater interest in what happens in the former Soviet Union. There is no love for Biden in Moscow. He met with Putin when he was vice president and has been very critical of the Kremlin. But those negative feelings aside, there is also a certain trump fatigue in Moscow. There were really high hopes for years ago and today U. S. Russian relations are at their lowest point since the Cold War. So there is some hope in Moscow that Biden will be more predictable and be able to start a sober professional dialogue on pressing bilateral issues of the first one that comes to mind his arms control. More predictable. Emily might also be interesting or helpful to China, right because it's been four sort of madcap years of trade wars and overnight tweets. And yet Beijing's position in the world is different now than it was when President Trump took office, isn't it? Yes, it's gone from what was then A developing regional power, too, in the U. S has eyes and this is accurate. A global competitors and that growing more negative view has led the US over the last four years to sanction Chinese officials, major Chinese companies and to limit the number of Of Chinese people who study and work in the US, But within China, you have the inverse of this negativity. China's had this surgeon self confidence since 2016. It's controlled a corona virus pandemic. It's produced some truly global companies, and that gives Beijing a sense that this is China's time to shine. And right now we're at this hugely uncertain moment in the relationship trumps refusal to conceive means that there's even warn certainty because Beijing cannot decide what its next move is going to be right now. Okay. If China is under the impression that it is, it's time to shine economically makes a lot of sense. Does a president Biden change that in any way? He could. Biden is expected to continue to push China and human rights issues such as Hong Kong civil rights Xinjiang, where hundreds of thousands of people have been detained. Remember he called cheating Ping a thug during one of the last presidential debates. But many in trying to hope us under Biden will temper the relationship and cooperate on things like trade and climate change. But Biden could also have a much more multilateral approach and that could actually put pressure on China. And Jane. Lastly, I want to reach back into history. Joe Biden once suggested that Iraq would be better off his three separate autonomous regions Kurdish, Sunni and Shiite. How was that idea held up? Yeah, so he was suggesting autonomous regions, but still with the central government and here in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, they very much welcome that support for increase power to the regions, but in other places it was seen as fuelling Iraq's sectarian divide. And there's still a bit of concern about that idea. But a lot of it has moved on to concern about Iran. And on that one he's seen as not being quite a cz obsessed with isolating Iran. So even some militia leaders here have welcomed his election. Okay. NPR's Jane Arraf in Erbil, Iraq, Emily faIIing in Beijing and Lucien Kim in Moscow. Thanks, everyone.

And that is that Alexei navalny has been discharged from a Berlin hospital navalny is the Russian opposition leader who spent thirty two days in inpatient Services following a Nova talk to an agent poisoning by Russia.

He spoke two days being treated by local doctors said they found no evidence of poisoning, but privately doctors there told media Outlets, they believed it was poisoning navalny was then transferred to Berlin Germany for further treatment with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and authorities said French and Swedish lab tests unequivocally confirmed. This was a novichok nerve agent poisoning. Nova trunk is a soviet-era poison known to be used by Russia Russian authorities, though, of course denied all involvement in the poisoning and alternatively have said he was either not poisoned or that navalny poisoned himself in response navalny took to Instagram. Say quote I cooked up novichok in the kitchen had a set from the bottle in the plane and fell into a coma but Putin outplayed me in the end.

Germany takes hard-line position against Russia amid Navalny fallout

Germany takes hard-line position against Russia amid Navalny fallout

"With the you know what has been in the headlines recently, the the whole navalny tension Germany is clearly taking a harder line position on. Russia, and the first question is does this reflect a consensus in the region that Russia's a growing menace to Europe and then the second? Talk a little bit about the poisoning of Nevada and what kind of pressure Germany is under. We've heard some hard words from Angela Merkel and what would be the real pitfalls of moving forward without sending a clear message of protest. So if we can bundle all those into into kind of a general answer that would be great well, ever since the annexation of Crimea it is very hard to pretend that the previous policy on Russia which consisted and really trying to build a partnership through economic ties with corporation that this actually worked because the annexation of Crimea from from European. But also from your perspective, of course, was a violation of international law the forceful. Changing of orders as something that scene as absolutely illegitimate illegal and also undermining the European security order. And so Gemini has taken a pretty important role. Alongside, Franz in the so called Normandy format. which consisted in building a forum for dialogue with Russia Ukraine. Germany and France. Representatives to discuss how the violent conflict also in eastern Ukraine could be reduced on how Russia could hopefully pro-european perspective withdraw at some point. The other role that Germany constructively played I think is to help create a European consensus on sanctions. This was always over the past years a transatlantic consensus. This is very important to know because of course, if you if you want to sanction and this is a transatlantic approach, this is final impressive. Now with. The Nevada case the interesting question is why why this attempted murder of an opposition politician while they have been other cases before? And and my understanding his two things one this became a German and European issue because of the decision to bring Lebanon lead to Germany into have him treated here this created a huge political and public attention to the case and on the other hand additionally that was really. This feeling of this is just the last straw that that was needed to break camel's back. It was just now of. Russian suppression of opposition of burdens or attempted murders then the. The situation. In Ukraine the feel of a Russian support for the regime and Belarus and the possible violent crackdown on the demonstrations that are going on at the same time. So so suddenly, all this cumulated to a point where not only burden but in other capitals of Europe as well there's a very serious debate ongoing which is basically a review of the previous approach towards Russia and what can be done a which leverage can be used to bring about at least a certain change in Russia's policy. or at least to deter the activities like the ones I just mentioned. One thing is important to notice with all the Europeans, the debate that is a strong coercion on the European side, not to make the conflict that is happening within Belarus geopolitical between Europe and Russia. Because the concern of course is if the Russian narrative which is trying to build up this geopolitical narrative of European intervention and an attempt of Europeans to. Topple the regime and galleries if that was actually nudged the fears that Russia would would basically I'm hit back more forcefully. So it's a very I would say cautious discussion but a very realistic one as to the question what kind of actor we've facing here and there are no illusions whatsoever now about let's say the real face of the planet MIA Putin.

"We don't know how to deal an actor that does all these things at once as you said, that isn't functioning in the sort of our rational way if you will in which we tend to think about foreign policy actions and covert operations. and. What if Donald Trump were of a mind to respond appropriately to this? What would an appropriate American response look like I mean this is after all the attempted murder it's not like the scruple poisoning, right? It's not on the territory of an ally. Alexina Valmy is not somebody except in the sense that the United States has an interest in democratic reforms in general, he's not somebody. I mean, this really is the internal politics of Russian Federation you know should this be something that the US government responds to in a serious way on what would a serious response to it look like? Well. The quick answer is yes but I think it's not just about in the Bali. Pattern here that we've been talking about and it's not just a pattern of poisoning is a pattern of state-sponsored murder of opposition leaders, and at this point the numbers are you know I've lost count of how many journalists have died? How many opposition leaders have been killed? Or. Poisoned in this case and barely survived. It is a pattern of Rufus behavior that is very clearly being directed by the Kremlin and perhaps by Mr Putin himself and I will say that we've done nothing so far. It hasn't just been the trump administration although this administration hasn't put out a statement as a recording time an official statement condemning this from the white. House. The State Department has made a statement by the White House is not I think as an obvious first step just say something about it and call the Russians. Out on this but I think going further than that one thing that people have been talking about for very long time because his pattern has been there for a long time is that we can take pretty specific steps to undermine specific individuals that are in the criminal lead that we know are probably involved in this decision making process, and we do that with targeted sanctions that would perhaps a freeze their assets not allow them to have access to certain bank accounts property rights as Cetera. Almost every individual within the Kremlin elite has off shore bank accounts owns assets and property real estate in. The world. But in some very specific places like London, like the United. States. And likely elsewhere that we don't know about and so we have a lot that we can do to really make it pretty painful for these people and send a very clear message. But we haven't I think Germany here be interesting to see given merckel has said about, Nevada she made a very strong statement and this was unacceptable behavior. which we really haven't heard from before but. We haven't seen Germany pull out of this very lucrative for the Russian side Norstrom two pipeline has incredibly controversial that the United States this administration and the Obama Administration disapproved of, but we haven't seen the German government do anything about it. and. I. Think that comes from putting. The relationship with Russia. The price of gas perhaps on which Germany is dependent on Russian gas above you know morals and above ethics just certain extent. But was certainly there's a lot that we should do in that we can do. But for years we've let this behavior just go basically unpunished. You know one of the things that the president's defenders have said is that while trump you know makes nice verbally to Putin. In fact, the actions of the trump administration have been substantially tougher than its predecessors. Do you expect that US reaction will get tougher if Joe Biden is elected and inaugurated or is the stasis that we've seen on this on the sort of toleration that Putin has been shown a kind of more bipartisan feature of American policy than we sometimes acknowledged. I think it's very much the latter. I think that's really unfortunate meaning that we've seen. SO-CALLED RESETS with Russia from multiple administrations in the United States the Obama Administration called that reset. But obviously, the Bush administration raptured on eleven. Wanted to work with Russia overlooked a lot of bad behavior and it's it's a pattern that we've seen across both parties in the United States where there is this sort of acknowledgment or perhaps common understanding that. We have to work with Russia there around and we have to work with this particular regime I'm meeting Mr, Putin's Russia because they're not going anywhere and as the argument goes on top of that, you know the real problem and I've seen this emerge more and more in the policy debate, you know the real problem is not Russia because look they're a big player economically speaking the real problem is China and so we. Really. Need to do is bring the Russians into the fold to help us build a common front against China and I think this thinking is is deeply deeply mistake him because we've tried it at least three times a cross about twenty years and it's only produced bad outcomes obviously the worst or which has been the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the continued occupation of Crimea. So I'm not sure why we keep doing the same thing. When it obviously doesn't work. So my concern is that the election won't change that much although I certainly hope it will I think Joe Biden in the past when he was vp was actually quite good and very sober minded on what the Kremlin is in his work on Ukraine I. Think he did some very good things policy perspective when it came to Ukraine by the same time, the Obama Administration carried out the reset which then resulted. With the Russian saying no thanks to your reset we're. Going to. Invade Ukraine. So I. Think I've seen this kind of thinking emerge and it's a hotly debated issue. I am skeptical though. because. Of the pattern we've seen for the last twenty years in the United. States. Alina Polyakova. Thanks so much for joining us. Thanks for having me.

"And by the listeners of K Q. E. D. Good morning. It's Friday morning. The time Now it's 7 34 back to morning Edition. This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm David Greene in Culver City, California and I'm Steve Inskeep in Washington, D C. Russia's leading opposition figure is in a coma staff for election of all, They believe someone poisoned the tea he drank. At an airport cafe before he boarded a domestic flight in Siberia. The United States has made no official statement about this. Although White House National Security advisor Robert O'Brien spoke on Fox News He's a great, very courageous man. He's a very courageous politician to have stood up to put inside Washington and our thoughts and our prayers are with him and his family. Let's go to NPR. Moscow correspondent Lucien Kemi there, Lucien Morning critical question. Where is Navalny and and who's treating him? Alexei Navalny right now is in a hospital in the Siberian city of Omsk, which is more than 1000 Miles east of Moscow. He's there because he was on a plane flying back to Moscow when when he fell unconscious and The plane had to make an emergency landing there. He's in a coma. As you mentioned he's hooked up to a ventilator in the intensive care unit. Navalny's press secretary, says the hospital is not properly equipped and that his life is in danger. The doctors there say they have found no trace of poison and that he's been diagnosed with some kind of metabolic disease caused by low blood sugar. This is really contradictory information because officials have told Navalny's colleagues that in fact a toxic substance had been found and that it's so poisonous that people around him have to wear protective suits. Wow, which is something you wouldn't miss if you were there, But I guess this is a moment to note he's still inside Russia. We therefore don't really have independent information about his continuing condition or an independent way to verify this doctor's claim that there's no No poison. Wasn't he supposed to be moved out of Russia? Exactly. I mean, that's what Navalny's people have been trying to get since yesterday. They say that all the permits were about to be issued. And at the very last minute, the doctors there in Omsk refused to let him be transported. Navalny's wife, Julia, who traveled to Siberia says the doctors are stalling basically in the hope that this poison in his body will break down and that any clues will be lost. Cole. If he moved to another country, his body itself would would be potentially evidence against Russian President Vladimir Putin has had quite a number of political opponents. Well, they were poisoned in various ways over the years. That's right. So what leverage does Germany have to get him out of Germany is where he would go well. Germany does have leverage. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has a very cool relationship with President Putin, but Germany as a country has very close business ties to Russia. Just one example is the pipeline that the two countries are building connecting Russia to Germany yesterday, a miracle came out and said publicly she was shocked by the news of Navalny's illness, and she'll insist on getting to the bottom of what exactly happened. She also said Germany was ready to provide medical treatment. And now we're hearing that there is, in fact, a plane in alms waiting to take him to Germany. Okay, So then there's the question of whether it gets permission to take off. What is the Kremlin have to say about that? The Kremlin is really allergic to anything having to do with Alexei Navalny. Ah Vladimir Putin doesn't even mention Navalny's name. State media has covered this A little bit of one news Bolton I saw on state TV yesterday referred to know Navalny as a blogger, but certainly not as a politician. Putin's spokesman has said the Kremlin is following Navalny's condition via the media and that they have nothing against him getting treatment abroad. Today he Said the question of Navalny's transportation out of the country is really a decision for doctors. He also said that doctors from Germany in arms had been invited into the hospital. Okay, Lucien. Thanks. Thank you. That's NPR's Lucien Kim in Moscow. President Trump's former political adviser, Steve Bannon, pled not guilty yesterday to criminal fraud and money laundering charges.

"Alexei Navalny, the face of Russia's opposition, a lawyer, a politician and a harsh critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Today, Navalny isn't an intensive care unit in Siberia. Suspected of poisoning reporter Charles Mains joins us from Moscow Charles How did all this play out and hasn't been established? That someone did indeed. Try to poison navalny? Well, it's still a developing story. And as far as whether you indeed was poisoned or not, is still an open theory, depending on who you talk to. We do know that he was fine home from Tomsk in Siberia back to Moscow. Along the flight. He didn't feel well, which prompted an emergency landing in Omsk not to be confused with Tomsk. Navarone now is actually in a medically induced coma on a respirator at the hospital there. Doctors say he's in serious but stable condition, although their quote fighting for his life Also lets his wife Julia, and his personal doctor now there's well that there were reports have some delays in getting access to Navalny initially with lots of police on the scene, So how did this happen? Have you heard any theories? Will his spokesperson I care? Young. Bush made comments to media here. So she says he just drank some black tea at the airport before the flight, and it's obvious that he was poisoned at that moment. Idea here being that hot liquid was more likely to absorb quickly into his body. You know, In fact, a passenger named Pavel Lebedev took a photo of navalny sitting at the cafe in the airport before he got on the flight. He appeared to be drinking tea and later the two of them ended up on that same flight. Andi. It's interesting that some point heat this level have noticed Howl's coming from the laboratory realized that the cries were coming from Navalny, and he ended up detail ing all this in a post to social media once he touched down in arms. So that was at the airport. What else can you tell us about the suspected poisoning? Is there any talk of a possible suspect or suspects or or a motive? No suspects yet certainly know among Navalny supporters. They find this to be no accident. Not surprising. They think it's politically motivated. Navalny has made his fair share of enemies with Siri's reports on corruption in the highest rungs of the Russian government and off Russian business. He's certainly been attacked numerous times before, including in 2017, when provocateurs doused him with a green dye that partially blinded him for a period.
