Biden stresses NATO's 'sacred ties' for your freedom and ours'

Biden stresses NATO's 'sacred ties' for your freedom and ours' at meeting with Polish President Duda as Russia says its war in Ukraine enters a new phase.

President Joe Biden met Polish President Andrzej Duda in Warsaw on Saturday to strengthen ties with his ally against Russia's war in Ukraine.

The speech comes when Russia appears to be reducing its invasion and saying that the war is entering a new phase.

President Joe Biden emphasized NATO's "sacred" connection at his meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda in Warsaw on Saturday as he sought to bolster ties amid Russia's war with Ukraine.

In his remarks, Biden stressed the United States' commitment to NATO's Article 5, which states that all other members will assist if one member of the alliance is attacked.

Poland has a 300-mile border with Ukraine and is one of several Eastern European countries that fear getting embroiled in Vladimir Putin's war, significantly if he expands his influence.

We regard Article V as a sacred obligation. It's not dead. "It is a sacred obligation of every NATO member," Biden said.

The President reiterated his pledge to provide double assurances at the end of his remarks.

We take Article 5 as a sacred obligation. A holy obligation stipulated in Article 5. "You can count on that, for your freedom and ours," he said.

One of the goals of Biden's trip was to emphasize unity among allies in the face of Russian aggression, which the President stressed in his statements.

"I'm sure Vladimir Putin was counting on dividing it, separating the east side from the west so much that he couldn't do that, and we all stayed together, so I think it's essential that we keep our heads up" Biden said.

The two leaders greeted each other warmly when Biden arrived outside the presidential palace with a 15-second handshake. Once Biden put his hand on Duda's shoulder.

Biden gave a formal welcome with a military squad and an official troop revival.

The President began the last day of his trip to Europe with a meeting with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov.

He will later meet a few refugees who have fled war-torn Ukraine. He's staying in a hotel across the street from Warsaw's central train station, a major arrival point for Ukrainian refugees. About 3.5 million fled the country, with 2 million in Poland.

Duda, who appeared with Biden on Friday, said the refugees are "guests."

We do not want to call them refugees. They are our guests, brothers, and neighbors from Ukraine who are in a challenging situation today.

The United States was sending money and supplies but would increase its contributions. Biden announced an additional $1 billion in aid and said the United States would welcome another 100,000 refugees.

Biden is also ready to deliver what the White House describes as a significant speech on the war.

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said the speech would set out "the urgency of the challenge ahead" and "what the conflict in Ukraine means for the world, and why it is so important that the free world remains resolute and resolute in the face of Russian aggression."
