The U.S. and the EU will tighten sanctions against Russia following Biden’s upcoming visit to Brussels, the White House said. The U.S. and the EU will discuss during Biden’s visit to Brussels a long-term adjustment of the alignment of forces on the eastern flank of NATO.

Also, Biden will not seek an immediate EU rejection of Russian energy resources during his visit to Brussels. The United States and the EU will announce joint actions during Biden’s visit to reduce Europe’s dependence on gas from Russia, the White House said.
