United States President Joe Biden said Wednesday that there will be "consequences" to any conflict escalation by Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, adding that he does not seek "conflict" with China but welcomes "competition."

In his first congressional speech at a joint session of the House of Representatives and the Senate, on the eve of his 100th day in the White House, Biden referenced recent talks with Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping. EFE
