Statement by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on the Virtual Bilateral Meeting between President Joe Biden and Micheál Martin, Taoiseach of Ireland
On Wednesday, March 17, President Joe Biden will host Micheál Martin, Taoiseach of Ireland, for a virtual bilateral meeting. They will reaffirm the deep, historic partnership and extraordinary people-to-people ties between the United States and Ireland. They will also discuss combatting COVID-19, addressing global challenges, increasing our shared prosperity, and supporting political and economic stability in Northern Ireland. Although the pandemic prevents the traditional White House celebration of St. Patrick’s Day this year, we look forward to marking this holiday and our close relationship with Ireland in a safe way.
