Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is set to engage in crucial discussions with President Biden during his visit to the United States next week, as confirmed by a reliable source with insight into Zelenskyy’s agenda.
President Biden is planning to extend a warm welcome to President Zelenskyy at the White House. Their synchronized presence in New York, where both leaders are attending the annual U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday and Wednesday, sets the stage for their anticipated meeting in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.
