Merkel travels to Washington on Wednesday and switches to Biden on Thursday afternoon Maas did not want to predict whether a breakthrough could be announced at the meeting between Chancellor Angela Merkel and US President Joe Biden at the White House on Thursday. “It is important that we have a goal in mind and I am sure we will achieve the goal,” he said. The timing is secondary. But of course it would be nice if that were the case while the chancellor was in Washington.”
Merkel heads to Washington on Wednesday and will meet Biden on Thursday afternoon (local time). The pipeline between Russia and Germany is nearing completion. The United States and some NATO partners in Eastern Europe fear that Europe is too dependent on Russian energy supplies and therefore reject the project.
But under Biden, the United States waived sanctions against the operator and agreed to talk to Germany to mitigate the consequences. The main objective is to provide security for Ukraine.
