Macron to Host Biden for State Visit after D-Day Commemoration

U.S. President Joe Biden will make his first state visit to France next week after attending a ceremony on the 80th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, the Elysee Palace said Thursday.

On June 8, Biden will make his first state visit to France, preceding summits with G-7 and NATO leaders, where Ukraine will be a key topic. Biden hosted Macron on a state visit to Washington in 2022.

On June 6, world leaders, including Britain’s King Charles, Germany’s Olaf Scholz, and possibly Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, will gather on the Normandy beaches to mark the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

The French and U.S. presidents will also discuss long-term aid to Ukraine, the Elysée said in a statement.

“Our close coordination on international crises will serve to prepare the next international events, including June’s G7 summit in Bari and the NATO summit in Washington in July,” the statement read.

Biden and Macron will discuss economic, space, and nuclear topics, in addition to climate change.

Moreover, about a million people, including King Charles III and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, are expected to attend the D-Day commemorations in France.
