On Friday in Washington, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken received German Foreign Minister Annalena Bärbock. She emphasized the particular importance of the transatlantic partnership between Berlin and Washington at a time when Russia is waging an aggressive war against Ukraine, and China has become a source of new foreign policy challenges. This was reported by the Russian service of the Voice of America.
Burbock is on a multi-day trip across the United States. American media note that before her tour of the United States, the German Foreign Minister visited Kyiv, where she once again assured the Ukrainian leadership of long-term support from Berlin.
Annalena Burbock is scheduled to hold talks with representatives of the US Congress in Washington. She will then travel to New York to attend the UN General Assembly.
