“Under the Biden administration, Hunter will be ready to comply with all the guidelines and standards that President Biden can introduce to resolve conflicts of interest or prevent the occurrence of such conflicts, including any restrictions related to foreign business interests”, – the agency quotes the statements.
The statement also said that Hunter Biden would not continue to involve his father in his entrepreneurial activities.
Earlier, the US President Donald Trump told reporters that he would like Ukraine to investigate the activities of the former US Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who worked for Burisma. In addition, he said that “China should begin an investigation into the Biden”. Prior to this, Trump claimed that Biden Jr. “received millions from Ukraine and China”.
The media reported that in 2013, during the vice presidency of Joe Biden, Hunter accompanied him during a visit to Beijing. According to some media reports, in Beijing, Hunter helped arrange a meeting for Jonathan Lee, the head of BHR’s China Private Private Equity Fund, with his father. According to The NewYorker, Joe Biden’s advisers feared that such business meetings of his son during official visits would jeopardize the vice president’s criticism.Riyadh denies involvement in the attack on the Iranian tanker in the Red Sea
