What a do nothing guy.
United States President Joe Biden’s first overseas trip beginning next week will include a meeting with Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and an audience with Queen Elizabeth, the White House announced on Thursday.
Beginning June 10, Biden plans to travel to Europe where he will participate in summits of the G7, NATO and the European Union.
Biden will conclude his first foray abroad with a previously announced face-to-face meeting with Russia President Vladimir Putin in Geneva on June 16.
Biden will meet Erdogan on the sidelines of the upcoming NATO summit in Brussels on June 14, the White House said. NATO leaders are scheduled to discuss future threats and burden sharing, as well as the planned withdrawal of US and NATO forces from Afghanistan.
Biden and Erdogan are expected to “discuss the full range of bilateral and regional issues”, according to the White House.
