Washington (AP) – Before his trip to the NATO crisis summit in Brussels, US President Joe Biden discussed the Ukraine war with Foreign Minister Olaf Scholz and other European allies on Monday.

French President Emmanuel Macron, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also attended the exchange conference. The conversation lasted nearly an hour, according to the White House. The heads of state and government discussed their “serious concern over Russia’s brutal actions in Ukraine.” This included attacks against the civilian population.

According to the White House, the allies agreed that they would continue to support “the brave Ukrainians who are defending their country from Russian aggression” with military aid. More humanitarian aid will be provided to the more than three million people who have fled the violence. The topic was also “recent diplomatic efforts in support of Ukraine’s efforts to reach a ceasefire.”

Biden travels to Brussels on Wednesday. There she will participate on Thursday in the highest meetings of NATO, the EU and the group of main democratic economic powers (G7). On Friday, the president of the United States flies to Poland. A meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda is scheduled for Saturday in Warsaw.
