Brussels, Belgium.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, and European Council President Charles Michel would travel to Washington in October for a summit between the EU and the U. S.

U.S. President Joe Biden is looking forward to welcoming the two European senior officials to the White House on Oct. 20, the White House announced in a statement on Thursday.

According to the statement, the meeting would focus on close cooperation between the U.S. and the EU.

It will include  our shared commitment to support Ukraine as it defends its sovereignty and to impose costs on Russia for its aggression.

It also said the U.S. and EU efforts to accelerate the global clean energy economy are to be advanced.

Cooperation on critical and emerging technologies, including digital infrastructure and artificial intelligence, are also on the agenda, the statement added.

The event would be the second summit between the U.S. and the EU since Biden took office.

The first such meeting was held in Brussels in June 2021.
