Germany's Angela Merkel To Visit Joe Biden At White House On July 15

US President to host German Chancellor in Washington for the deep bilateral ties.



Carbis Bay, England:

US President Joe Biden will host German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Washington on July 15 to affirm “the deep bilateral ties”, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Friday.

The announcement was made on the first day of the Group of Seven summit in England. 

Biden has hosted two other world leaders since taking office, Japan and South Korea.

Psaki said Biden and Merkel “will discuss their commitment to 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.”

A standoff over the completion of the $11 billion Nord Stream 2 pipeline piping Russian gas to Europe has strained ties at a time when Berlin and Washington are eager to rebuild relations after former U.S. President Donald Trump’s term.

The United States waived sanctions last month on the company behind the pipeline, Russian state energy firm Gazprom, giving Berlin and Washington three more months to resolve the dispute.
