Kirby reports that during the bilateral meeting, the presidents will discuss such priorities as support for Ukraine, the need for the Indo-Pacific region to be free and open, as well as solving the crisis in the Middle East and efforts to combat climate change.

Quote: "France is, of course, an important US ally — in fact, our nation’s oldest ally. And this visit will underscore continued US-French leadership on a range of consequential issues," Kirby said.

When asked whether Biden and Macron would discuss using frozen Russian assets in favour of Ukraine, he said he did not doubt that the issue would be discussed when the US president has the opportunity to talk to leaders in France and next week at the G7 summit.
