President Biden will welcome the German chancellor to the White House on Friday. National Security Council spokesman John Kirby says they’ll discuss a range of issues, including providing support to Ukraine as it fights Russia’s invasion.
“President Biden’s gonna welcome German Chancellor Olaf Scholz here to the White House to discuss our bilateral cooperation on a range of global security and economic issues,” Kirby said.
Kirby said they’ll discuss what Ukraine will need in the weeks and months ahead to stop Russia.
“We’ve closely coordinated our support to Ukraine throughout this conflict, including through joint announcements in January to provide infantry fighting vehicles and tanks. Germany has provided significant air defense support to Ukraine.”
The two countries recently agreed to arm Ukraine with tanks. The meeting comes just one year after Russia invaded Ukraine.
