President Joe Biden kicked off day two of the North American Leaders’ Summit Tuesday with a bilateral meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, where the two leaders discussed clean energy and support for Ukraine in its war with Russia.
The meeting will likely build on previous goals established at the G20 conference in Bali last November, where both Biden and Trudeau were present.
The meeting also comes weeks after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with Biden in Washington and addressed a joint session of Congress to ask for more aid to Ukraine. Congress went on to allocate about $45 billion in additional emergency assistance to Ukraine following Zelenskyy’s remarks.
Biden has repeatedly reaffirmed the United States alliance with Ukraine and has oftentimes turned to other allies to try and get more aid to the country.
