"We must prepare together for long-term strategic competition with China," POTUS says. "Competition with China is going to be stiff. That's what I believe, and that's what I welcome."

But, Biden says, "everyone must play by the same rules." Turning to Russia, POTUS says "Putin seeks to weaken the European project and our NATO alliance...because it's easier for the Kremlin to bully individual states." Reiterates it is "vital" to defend Ukraine's sovereignty.
