Briefing Room
MS. PSAKI: Hi, everyone. Okay, a couple of items for all of you at the top. As the country recovers from this once-in-a-century pandemic and economic crisis, the private businesses that make up our supply chains and get goods to businesses and the American people have struggled to keep up. We’ve talked about this a fair amount in this briefing room.
This is not just happening here at home, but all around the world as COVID has led to shutdowns and disruptions at ports and factories around the world.
In June, the White House launched the Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force to address short-term supply chain bottlenecks. And after working closely with the leaders and companies at that port — on potential solutions, we announced a new port envoy to the task force in August.
Solving this issue is going to require cooperation between the private sector, including rail and trucking, ports, and labor unions. And so, tomorrow, the President will be meeting with the leadership of the Port of Los Angeles, the Port of Long Beach, and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union to discuss the challenges at ports across the country and actions each partner can take to address these delays.
The administration will also hold a roundtable tomorrow with private sector companies, including Walmart, UPS, Home Depot, to discuss how the largest cargo owners and shipping companies can address congestion in the transportation and logistics supply chain.
We’ll also have a briefing later this evening with all of you, and people who are not in this room right now, to give you more details on any announcements for tomorrow.
I also wanted to note — I had one more item. I may — maybe I’ll get back to it at the end.
It’s also Jenny Leonard’s birthday, so we’ll just note that. Happy Birthday to Jenny.
There’s going to be a bilateral meeting with the President of Kenya later this week. I’ll get you more details after the briefing...     more

Joe Biden's 'Taiwan Agreement' With Xi Jinping Causes Confusion

oct. 6 - Taiwan's diplomats sought immediate clarification from their American counterparts after President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that he and Chinese leader Xi Jinping would abide by "the Taiwan agreement."

​Biden's comments were promoted by a question about the increase in Chinese military aircraft activity near the island democracy this October. The remarks caused some confusion and momentary alarm by injecting a new phrase into Taiwan and China policy discourse in the United States.

"I've spoken with Xi about Taiwan. We agree, we will abide by the Taiwan agreement," the president told reporters outside the White House. "We made it clear that I don't think he should be doing anything other than abiding by the agreement"...     more

Oct 6 - A Chinese military intervention against Taiwan represents a major security threat for Japan. So it is not surprising that a Japanese poll found 74 percent of respondents supportive of their government engaging to advance peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. Tokyo’s potential role in a military contingency involving Taiwan has also been in the spotlight, however, following increased Chinese and U.S. tensions over the island and a series of comments by senior Japanese officials, including Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso.

​Although Japan’s response in a Taiwan contingency would ultimately reflect the nature of the threat, the U.S. approach, and the broader international reaction, Japan’s constitution and security legislation create legal limits on Tokyo’s ability to defend Taiwan. Yet these limits remain little explored with respect to various Taiwan scenarios, within either Japanese or U.S. policy circles. Because Japan’s security legislation is so complex, particularly after changes that entered into force in 2016 to expand the authorities of the Self-Defense Forces (SDF), a potential Japanese response to a Taiwan contingency is much less clear than it may appear on the surface...     more

Remarks by President Biden Before Marine One Departure


South Lawn

Q    Mr. President, what is your message to moderates who are frustrated with the delay in the vote?
THE PRESIDENT:  Everybody is frustrated.  It’s part of being in government — being frustrated.
Hey, look, one of the things I love about you guys — I watched the other day: “Biden vowed he’s going to do this.  Biden commits…” 
Biden is going to work like hell to make sure we get both of these passed, and I think we will get them passed. 

Q    Will there be --
THE PRESIDENT:  And I’ll be on the phone with them a lot and may be meeting with some. 
Q    Do you think that Democrats need to go it alone and do reconciliation in order to pass — raise the debt limit?

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I hope that Republicans won’t be so irresponsible as to refuse to raise the debt limit and to — and to filibuster the debt limit.  That would be totally unconscionable.  Never been done before.  And so, I hope that won’t happen.  Number one.
Number two, with regard to dealing with childcare, dealing with the tax credits for people putting in everything from solar panels on their homes to winterizing their homes — I mean, they’re making their homes so they — the windows and doors are — are solid.  All those things are in that second piece of legislation.  And I’m going to be going around the country, this week, making the case why that’s so important.
Look, it’s understandable.  There’s an awful lot that’s in both of these bills that everybody thinks they know, but they don’t know what’s in them.  I — when you — when you go out and you test each of the individual elements in the bill, everyone is for them — not everyone; over 70 percent of the American people are for them. 
For example, my objective here is to make sure we put in place the things that are going to make life more livable for ordinary people.  I mean that sincerely.  It’s not — that’s not a political statement; it’s reality.  You have people — a woman trying to get back to work that has two kids, and she can’t get back unless she has adequate daycare and can afford it. 
You can’t be in a situation where if you have a child — why would someone making, say, 20,000 bucks a year not get a rebate, not — not get money back from the government, just like you guys and I get when we file our taxes?  We get $2,000 for every kid we have and just take it right off our taxes.  But if they don’t have any taxes to pay because they don’t make any money, then they should get their direct payment back.  Why should they be cheated out of that?  It’s about just being fair. 
There’s nothing in any of these pieces of legislation that’s radical, that is unreasonable, that is — when you look at it individually. 
The problem is — you know, one of the reasons why — people said, “Well, I heard on television…” — and it wasn’t totally legit — “Why wasn’t Biden going around the country selling this before?”  Well, folks, two little things like — we had hurricanes and floods, and we had little things like we ha- — anyway, a lot was going on.  A lot was going on. 
So, I’m going to try to sell what I think the people — American people would buy.  And I’m convinced. 

Q    Are you confident that Senator Sinema is going --

THE PRESIDENT:  I’m not — look, I’m not — you’re asking if I’m confident — okay?  — am I — am I unyielding, do I commit that I’m going to do this.  Come on. 
I believe I can get this done.  I believe, when the American people are aware what’s in it, we can get it done.
Q    Do you think by Thanksgiving, sir?  Do you think this could be all done by Thanksgiving?
THE PRESIDENT:  I think it can be done by 2:27 a.m. on Decem- — come on.  I think it will get done.  Plenty of time for it to be part of changing the tax code for people next year and for giving people the breaks they need.
Q    You said everyone is frustrated.  How frustrated are you, Mr. President, about the delay?
Q    President Biden, do you think the infrastructure plan can pass without a reconciliation framework agreed to? 
THE PRESIDENT:  I’m sorry?
Q    Do you think the infrastructure bill can pass the House without a reconciliation framework agreement?
THE PRESIDENT:  Look, I am — I’m a realist.  I’ve been — I was a senator a long time.  I know how legislation gets done.  There is no reason why both these bills couldn’t pass independently except that there are not the votes to do it that way.  It’s a simple proposition.
And so, I think it makes sense I support both of them, and I think we can get them both done.

Q    Can you talk about how Democrats are united in their priorities?  Have you been surprised by how difficult it has been to bring the moderates and progressives together on agreement with this?
THE PRESIDENT:  We can bring the moderates and progressives together very easy if we had two more votes.  Two.  Two people.

OCTOBER 2, 2021
President Biden White House Departure
​President Biden briefly stopped to talk to the press as he departed the White House for Wilmington, Delaware. He said he believes he can get his agenda passed, saying there is “no reason why both bills can’t pass,” referring to the infrastructure and reconciliation bills. He went on to say, “I am a realist. I was in the Senate for years. I know how legislation gets done.”


Navy to Christen Guided-Missile Destroyer Carl M. Levin

​OCT. 2, 2021

The Navy will christen the future USS Carl M. Levin (DDG 120), an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, during a 10:30 a.m. ET ceremony in Bath, Maine, Oct. 2.

U.S. Sen. Jack Reed, of Rhode Island, will deliver the keynoteaddress at the ceremony. Remarks will also be provided by the Honorable Carlos Del Toro, Secretary of the Navy; the Honorable Mike McCord, Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller); and Adm. William Lescher, Vice Chief of Naval Operations, as well as the Honorable Janet Mills, Governor of Maine; U.S. Sen. Angus King, of Maine; U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, of Maine’s 1st District; and U.S. Rep. Andy Levin, of Michigan’s 9th District. 

Sen. Levin’s daughters, Kate Levin Markel, Laura Levin, and Erica Levin – the ship’s sponsors – will participate in a time-honored Navy tradition to christen the ship by breaking a bottle of sparkling wine across the bow.

“The late Senator Carl Levin said that public service is in his DNA,” said Del Toro. “Senator Levin’s decisions leading the Senate Armed Services Committee shaped our nation and Navy for the better. It is my honor, on behalf of the Navy, and with his three daughters serving as sponsor, to expand his legacy by christening a namesake ship, USS CARL LEVIN.”

The future USS Carl M. Levin is named in honor of the former Michigan senator who remains the longest-serving senator in the state’s history. Levin became a staunch supporter of the armed services through his work and leadership as Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Levin passed away July 29, 2021.

Arleigh Burke-class destroyers provide multi-mission offensive and defensive capabilities. These ships serve as crucial assets in global maritime security, conducting anti-air, anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare, as well as executing long-range strike and surface fire support missions. DDG 120 will be a Flight IIA destroyer with the Aegis Baseline 9 Combat Systems, including Integrated Air and Missile Defense capability.

In addition to Carl M. Levin (DDG 120), General Dynamics - Bath Iron Works (BIW) has five additional Arleigh Burke-class destroyers under construction, to include the the future: USS John Basilone (DDG 122), the future USS Harvey C. Barnum Jr. (DDG 124), the future USS Patrick Gallagher (DDG 127), the future USS Louis H. Wilson Jr. (DDG 126), and the future USS William Charette (DDG 130). BIW is under contract to construct four additional Arleigh Burke-class destroyers with the Flight III configuration that includes enhanced Integrated Air and Missile Defense capabilities.

​Media may direct queries to the Navy Office of Information at (703) 697-5342. More information on the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers can be found at:  https://www.navy.mil/Resources/Fact-Files/Display-FactFiles/Article/2169871/destroyers-ddg-51/

U.S.-India Joint Leaders’ Statement: A Partnership for Global Good

​President Joseph R. Biden welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the White House today for their first in-person Leaders’ engagement, renewing their close relationship and charting a new course to advance the partnership between the world’s largest democracies.  

The Leaders affirmed a clear vision that will guide the U.S.-India relationship   forward:  building a strategic partnership  and working together with  regional groupings, including ASEAN and Quad members, to promote shared interests in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond; developing a trade and investment partnership that increases prosperity for working families in both countries; finishing the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and other health challenges; galvanizing global efforts to scale up climate action;  strengthening democratic values and institutions in support of our respective peoples; and enhancing people-to-people ties that have made both countries stronger. 

President Biden and Prime Minister Modi expressed deep pride and appreciation about their nations’ close cooperation to fight the COVID-19 pandemic over the past year, as governments, civil society, businesses, and diaspora communities mobilized in unprecedented ways to share emergency relief supplies during each country’s times of need.  Having administered hundreds of millions of doses of vaccine to protect their own citizens at home and abroad, they reiterated their commitment to lead the global effort to end this pandemic.  President Biden welcomed India’s announcement that it will resume exports of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines including to COVAX.  The Leaders also hailed the finalization of the overarching Memorandum of Understanding on Health and Biomedical Sciences to bolster cooperation on key areas affecting global health, including pandemic preparedness and biomedical research, to reduce the risk of future pandemics.

Prime Minister Modi welcomed President Biden’s initiative to convene the Global COVID-19 Summit on Ending the Pandemic and Building Back Better to Prepare for the Next, given our shared commitment to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

Prime Minister Modi welcomed U.S. leadership on climate action, including the return of the United States to the Paris Agreement.  President Biden expressed support for Prime Minister Modi’s intention to achieve a domestic goal of installing 450 GW of renewable power by 2030 and acknowledged the importance of mobilizing finance for investments in renewables, storage, and grid infrastructure that will guarantee clean, reliable power for millions of Indian households.  Through the two main tracks of the Strategic Clean Energy Partnership (SCEP) and the Climate Action and Finance Mobilization Dialogue (CAFMD) under the U.S.-India Climate and Clean Energy Agenda 2030 Partnership, the United States and India will accelerate clean energy development and deployment of critical technologies to advance a clean energy transition.  India welcomed the United States joining the Leadership Group for Industry Transition (LeadIT).

President Biden reaffirmed the strength of the defense relationship between the United States and India and the unwavering commitment to India as a Major Defense Partner through close defense engagements in information sharing, sharing of logistics and military-to-military interactions, strengthening cooperation in advanced military technologies, and expanding engagements in a multilateral framework including with regional partners.  The Leaders welcomed the deepening of advanced industrial cooperation.  In this context, they noted the recent project to co-develop air-launched unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) under the Defense Technology and Trade Initiative, and encouraged more such joint efforts.  They called upon the government and private stakeholders to use the existing ecosystems of innovation and entrepreneurship in defense industries for co-development, co-production and expanding mutual defense trade.  They also looked forward to the inaugural meeting of the Industrial Security Agreement summit to facilitate high-end defense industrial collaboration.

The Leaders resolved that the Taliban must abide by UNSC Resolution 2593 (2021), which demands that Afghan territory must never again  be used to threaten or attack any country or to shelter or train terrorists, or to plan or finance terrorist attacks, and underscored the importance of combating terrorism in Afghanistan.  The Leaders called on the Taliban to adhere to these and all other commitments, including regarding the safe, secure, and orderly departure from Afghanistan of Afghans and all foreign nationals and to respect the human rights of all Afghans, including women, children, and members of minority groups.  They emphasized the importance of efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan, called on the Taliban to allow full, safe, direct and unhindered access for the United Nations, its specialized agencies and implementing partners, and all humanitarian actors engaged in humanitarian relief activity, including with respect to internally displaced persons.  Reflecting their long-term commitment to promoting development and economic opportunity for the Afghan people, they determined to continue to closely coordinate and to work jointly with partners toward an inclusive and peaceful future for all Afghans.

The Leaders called for an end of the use of violence, for release of all political detainees, and for a swift return to democracy in Myanmar.  They further called for the urgent implementation of the ASEAN Five Point Consensus.

The Leaders welcomed increased cooperation under the Quad, including in the multilateral domain given their shared vision of a free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific region with respect to territorial integrity and sovereignty, and international law.  President Biden applauded India’s strong leadership during its UN Security Council Presidency in August 2021.  In this context, President Biden also reiterated U.S. support for India’s permanent membership on a reformed UN Security Council and for other countries who are important champions of multilateral cooperation and aspire to permanent seats on the UN Security Council.   He also reaffirmed U.S. support for India’s entry to the Nuclear Suppliers Group.  They welcomed the extension of the Statement of Guiding Principles on Triangular Cooperation for Global Development to leverage the combined capacities of India and the United States to address global development challenges around the world, particularly in the Indo-Pacific and Africa.  In addition, they looked forward to the launch of the U.S.-India Gandhi-King Development Foundation to advance cooperation on health, education, and the environment.

They looked forward to reconvening the India-U.S. Trade Policy Forum before the end of 2021, to enhance the bilateral trade relationship by addressing trade concerns, identifying specific areas for increased engagement and developing an ambitious, shared vision for the future of the trade relationship.  The Leaders looked forward to convening the U.S.-India CEO Forum and the Commercial Dialogue in early 2022, leveraging the talents of the private sector.  The Leaders noted ongoing negotiations on an Investment Incentive Agreement that facilitates investment in development projects and committed to an early conclusion.  They further discussed how the United States and India will work together to set sustainable and transparent rules of the road that will lift economies throughout the Indo-Pacific.  They welcomed increased collaboration through the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure and the upcoming Indo-Pacific Business Forum.

The Leaders noted that the movement of highly skilled professionals, students, investors and business travelers between their countries enhances their economic and technological partnership.  The Leaders highlighted the importance of resilient and secure supply chains between the two countries. They welcomed the involvement of the private sector in both countries in building stronger linkages in critical sectors such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, semiconductors, and information technology. The Leaders recognized the importance of critical and emerging technologies in delivering economic growth and achieving strategic priorities.  They looked forward to reviving the High Technology Cooperation Group (HTCG) in early 2022, with the objective of accelerating high technology commerce in key areas.

The Leaders decided that the United States and India must continue and expand their partnership in new domains and many areas of critical and emerging technology – space, cyber, health security, semiconductors, AI, 5G, 6G and future generation telecommunications technology, and Blockchain, that will define innovation processes, and the economic and security landscape of the next century.  The Leaders recognized the foundational need to address vulnerabilities and threats in cyberspace, including to promote critical infrastructure resilience, and welcomed the increasing partnerships among governments to counter ransomware and other cyber-enabled crime, including efforts to combat cybercriminals that operate from within their borders. The Leaders reiterated the importance of sustainable capacity-building and noted that mutual technical assistance efforts to respond to cyber threats should be prioritized and increased, including through dialogues, joint meetings, training and sharing of best practices.  They looked forward to the finalization of a Space Situational Awareness Memorandum of Understanding that will help in sharing of data and services towards ensuring the long-term sustainability of outer space activities by the end of the year.

As global partners, the United States and India resolved to further strengthen their collaboration in education, science and technology and people-to-people engagement.  The Leaders welcomed close consultations through the 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue of the Foreign and Defense Ministers of India and the United States to be held later this year.

The Leaders celebrated the deep and vibrant ties between the people of both nations, which underpins the special bond between the United States and India, and has sustained their partnership for nearly 75 years.  They reaffirmed, and encouraged others to embrace, their shared values of freedom, democracy, universal human rights, tolerance and pluralism, and equal opportunities for all citizens, and committed to pursue efforts towards sustainable development and global peace and security.

Prime Minister Modi conveyed his deep appreciation for the repatriation of antiquities to India by the United States. The Leaders committed to strengthen their efforts to combat the theft, illicit trade and trafficking of cultural objects.

Reflecting shared values and principles, and growing strategic convergence, President Biden and Prime Minister Modi resolved to advance the U.S.-India Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership, and looked forward to what the United States and India will achieve together.
