The internal problems of the United States at the current stage are the biggest challenge to the national security of the country.
This was stated by the Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Jake Sullivan during a speech at the webinar of the Washington Institute for Peace.
“The most profound national security challenge facing the United States is getting our own house in order,” – RIA Novosti quoted Sullivan as saying.
According to him, the United States is faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, which “continues to plague the population,” with economic and climate crises.
