In a highly anticipated diplomatic engagement, President Joe Biden is set to host German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Washington this Friday.
The meeting, scheduled for nearly 2:45 PM local time (7:45 PM GMT), comes amid significant international discussions.
On the eve of their formal meeting, Scholz is slated to engage with members of the US Congress over dinner in Washington, where the situation in Ukraine will be a key topic of conversation.
Before his visit, Chancellor Scholz called on the European Union and the United States to "make more efforts," expressing his view that the commitments made so far are "insufficient."
This visit underscores the critical nature of German-American relations, especially in the context of current geopolitical challenges and the need for strengthened transatlantic cooperation.
