Live blog: Biden at Munich Security Conference

Joe Biden, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and Boris Johnson top the bill on Friday in a virtual version of the world’s top gathering on foreign affairs and defense — 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, Biden’s climate envoy, will also address the conference — a scaled-down rejig of the gathering that normally fills Munich’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 António Guterres are among the other big names on the program.
