U.S. President Joe Biden unveiled major plans to invest in America during his address to a joint session of the United States Congress on Wednesday.
But he also talked about foreign policy issues. He discussed the China-U.S. relationship. And he talked about Russia and Iran. Biden also weighed in on plans for the U.S. to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan after 20 years of war.

- Qinduo Xu is Senior Fellow at the Pangoal Institution, and host of CGTN’s Dialogue Weekend.
- Bruce McConnell is the President and CEO of the EastWest Institute and Distinguished Fellow with the Stimson Center.
- Anton Fedyashin is a Russian affairs expert and a professor of history at American University.
- Trita Parsi is the Executive Vice President at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft and an expert on U.S.-Iranian relations
