WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Tuesday that President Joe Biden will discuss energy prices, Iran’s nuclear program and supply chain issues during his trip to Europe this week for a meeting of G20 leaders.
Sullivan told reporters that Biden will seek to promote progress on global minimum taxes during his trip.
Biden leaves for Italy on Thursday. He is due to meet Pope Francis at the Vatican on Friday before he begins meetings with leaders of the world’s largest economies in Rome. After the G20 meetings, Biden traveled to Glasgow, Scotland, to attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26.
Sullivan said the United States and Europe were united before the two summits, noting that Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin did not attend.
“The United States and Europe will be there, and there will be active and united in both the G20 and COP26, driving the agenda,” Sullivan said.
“He’s going to laser-focus on supply chains and energy prices because he knows these issues affect working families here in America,” Sullivan said, referring to Biden.
