Today’s bilateral meeting between Biden and Chancellor Sholz at G7 was “very warm and friendly,” according to the White House. President Biden “expressed his trust” in Chancellor Sholz.
Biden said that the world leaders “have to stay together” because “Putin is counting on from the beginning that NATO and the G7 would splinter.”
Ukraine was one of the main topics of conversation in the G7 meeting.
According to the White House, “both of them agree with President Zelensky that ultimately there needs to be a negotiated resolution to the conflict. But they did not get into specific details about how to achieve that. And I think both of us have the same broad approach to the diplomatic solution.”
At the top of the G7 meeting between Biden and Chancellor Sholz , President expressed appreciation for Germany’s decision to increase its defense spending, a critical issue heading into the NATO summit after this.
