WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden will receive the Prime Minister of Sweden Magdalena Anderson and the President of Finland Sauli Niiniste at the White House at a meeting on Thursday amid their desire to join NATO after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The White House said it would discuss the two countries’ applications to join the mutual defense alliance, as well as European security in general. Requests by long-neutral countries to join NATO have been widely praised in the alliance as a rebuke to Russia following its invasion of Ukraine, although Turkey has made reservations.

The meeting is scheduled to take place before Biden leaves Washington for a four-day trip to South Korea and Japan.
