President Joe Biden met with Defense Department leaders at the White House on Wednesday to discuss the challenges of navigating the “complicated world.”

“We made it clear that this decade we were going to be engaged,” Biden said.

“We both have to deal with growing great-power competition while simultaneously addressing common challenges that impact the lives of billions of people around the world.”

And one of the countries Biden singled out was China and its “increasingly intense competition.”

“We must maintain our military advantage by making it clear that we see no conflict.”

The meeting follows Biden’s release of a national security strategy earlier this month that calls for “removing China” and blocking his efforts to reshape global affairs.
