Statement from White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the Visit of Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany

President Biden looks forward to welcoming Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany to the White House on Friday, March 3, 2023.  The Chancellor’s visit is an opportunity to reaffirm the deep bonds of friendship between the United States and our NATO Ally Germany.  At the one-year mark of Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine, the leaders will discuss our ongoing efforts to support Ukraine, impose costs on Russia for its aggression, and strengthen transatlantic security.  They will also review our continued cooperation on a range of regional and global security issues, including working together on shared challenges posed by China and our cooperation in the Indo-Pacific.
