Finland’s President Sauli Niinisto will visit President Joe Biden in Washington, D.C., on Friday, just as the debate on joining NATO has intensified in the Nordic country after its neighbor Russia invaded Ukraine. 

The presidents are set to discuss Russia’s attack, its impact on security in Europe and bilateral cooperation between the countries, Niinisto’s office said in a statement on Thursday. Niinisto will also meet with other policy makers.
