President Biden to travel to Poland

U.S. President Joe Biden will travel to Poland on Friday to discuss the international response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which has sparked a “humanitarian and human rights crisis,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Sunday night.

On Thursday, the US president will attend an emergency NATO summit on Ukraine, as well as a G7 meeting. Joe Biden will also attend a European Council summit to discuss Ukraine, “including transatlantic efforts to impose economic costs on Russia, provide humanitarian support to those affected by violence, and address other challenges related to conflict “, according to the White House.

“This week, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. will travel to Poland following his meetings in Brussels, Belgium with our NATO Allies, G7 Leaders, and European Union Leaders to discuss international efforts to support Ukraine and impose severe and unprecedented costs on Russia for its invasion. On Friday, March 25, President Biden will travel to Warsaw, Poland, where he will hold a bilateral meeting with President Andrzej Duda. The President will discuss how the United States, alongside our Allies and partners, is responding to the humanitarian and human rights crisis that Russia’s unjustified and unprovoked war on Ukraine has created,” reads the press release.

Poland has so far received the highest number of Ukrainian refugees, over 2 million.

The White House also said that Joe Biden will discuss with German President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday, at 3 p.m.
