Joe Biden, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and Boris Johnson top the bill on Friday in a virtual version of the worldâ€™s top gathering on foreign affairs and defense â€” the Munich Security Conference.
The online event presents a first opportunity for the new U.S. president to set out his foreign policy agenda to Europe since he took office last month. John Kerry, Bidenâ€™s climate envoy, will also address the conference â€” a scaled-down rejig of the gathering that normally fills Munichâ€™s Hotel Bayerischer Hof every February.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel and U.N. chief AntÃ³nio Guterres are among the other big names on the program.
