US should match its words with deeds and truly come back to multilateralism

China Daily | Updated: 2021-05-21 00:00

The Joe Biden administration has shown its reluctance to get sidetracked by regional concerns such as the war in Afghanistan and conflicts in the Middle East.

But two weeks of a bloody upsurge in the Israel-Palestine conflict is a reminder that the America that President Biden claims "is back" can't pretend those troubles are negligible just because it wants to make a strategic geopolitical shift.

The Biden administration has found itself under fire, because of its initial silence, and then its shilly-shally statements on the bloodshed. What it has done-issuing ambiguous appeals for restraint while avoiding getting further involved-is certainly not what people expect of the US as a global leader, or even as a responsible world power with significant influence in the region.
