Biden to meet Andersson, Niinisto at WH on Thursday

United States President Joe Biden will meet his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto and Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson at his residence on Thursday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a written statement on Tuesday.

"The leaders will discuss Finland's and Sweden's NATO [North Atlantic Treaty Organization] applications and European security, as well as strengthening our close partnerships across a range of global issues and support for Ukraine," the statement read.

Earlier in the day, the Finnish Foreign Affairs Committee voted unanimously in favor of that country joining NATO.
