Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Biden arrives in Europe for G7, NATO Summits”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Biden touched down in Europe on Saturday for a series of high-profile summits with Group of Seven and NATO leaders as the administration looks to support key alliances in a region still grappling with the fallout from Russia’s assault on Ukraine while expanding efforts to counter China’s growing influence around the globe.

Four months into the war in Ukraine, the trip presents an important test for the administration to shore up resolve among its allies to continue maintaining pressure on Russia amid growing economic hardships and the prospects of a long war of attrition in Ukraine setting in.

Mr. Biden’s itinerary begins in Schloss Elmau, Germany on Sunday with bi-lateral talks with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in what administration officials called a “signals check” ahead of the G7 summit. The two leaders are expected to discuss both countries’ ongoing efforts to assist Ukraine and hold Russia accountable ahead of the full summit.

The president will then attend a series of panels on infrastructure, climate and foreign policy with his other G7 counterparts, beginning with a discussion on the global economy for which the war in Ukraine will remain a central topic.

“You can be sure that leaders are going to be talking about core problems that are on the top of mind for all of us across the board, like rising prices, supply chain disruptions, all exacerbated by this war in Ukraine and by Mr. Putin’s decision,” Nation Security Spokesman John Kirby told press Saturday in a preview of the trip aboard Air Force One.
