Biden, answering a question about possible terrorist threats in the United States, admitted that against the backdrop of escalation in the Middle East, the likelihood of terrorist attacks in America has increased. The US President said that he met with representatives of US intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies to discuss this threat. He stressed that the American authorities are making every effort to avoid terrorist attacks in the country.
