U.S. President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will welcome Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany to the White House on February 7, 2022, and both leaders will discuss a wide range of issues, including Russia’s aggression in Ukraine and COVID-19

“Chancellor Scholz’ visit provides an opportunity to affirm the deep and enduring ties between the United States and Germany,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement on Thursday.

She said both leaders will discuss “their shared commitment to both ongoing diplomacy and joint efforts to deter further Russian aggression against Ukraine.”

“They will also discuss the importance of continued close cooperation on a range of common challenges, including ending the COVID-19 pandemic, addressing the threat of climate change, and promoting economic prosperity and international security based on our shared democratic values,” Psaki added.
