The presidents met in France on the sidelines of ceremonies marking the 80th anniversary of the Normandy landings. The White House had previously announced that the presidents would meet at least twice in the coming days, with the second meeting expected at the G7 summit in Italy on June 13-15.

This follows an earlier Associated Press report on the same day of a new $225 million U.S. military aid package, including HIMARS ammunition, mortar systems, and artillery.

The weapons in the new American package can be used by the defense forces to counter "threats inside Russia and protect Kharkiv from brazen Russian attacks."
