WASHINGTON — U.S. President Joe Biden would “love to visit Ukraine,” but there are no current plans for him to do so, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said on Monday, after House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi paid a surprise visit over the weekend.
Psaki said the White House would continue to assess the situation, and underscored the Biden administration’s objective to reopen the U.S. Embassy and have U.S. diplomats on site.
“And I know the president would love to visit Ukraine, but no plans in the works at this time,” she said. (Reporting by Trevor Hunnicutt; writing by Andrea Shalal; Editing by Leslie Adler)
