Building on Extraordinary Progress

According to Jake Sullivan, the White House national security adviser, the meeting between Biden and Kishida will review the “extraordinary progress” made in the alliance over the past two years. Sullivan noted that discussions will also touch on the subject of reconstruction and economic and humanitarian support to Ukraine, as well as “how to set the appropriate conditions with progress on the battlefield shaping progress at an eventual negotiating table if and when Ukraine is prepared to do that down the road.”

Supply chains and clean energy are also topics that will be discussed between Biden and Kishida in the private meeting, as will the common concerns associated with the growing threat from China, which has declared a “friendship without limits” with Russia.
