President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky expects the invitation from Joe Biden to a meeting at the White House, as the President’s Office reported citing Axios.

“I think I will definitely be invited by President Biden to the White House, and I will gladly accept that invitation. I believe that we have a lot to talk about and a lot to do. It seems to me that some changes in the world will take place during President Biden's term. Very positive changes. I would very much like us to be able to help him in this matter, and I would like President Biden to help Ukraine, which he knows very well. But not as deep as we would like. I am sure that after our meeting it will be so. And I think that the invitation, our meeting with the President of the United States, is a symbol and the answer to all the questions you asked me in the beginning about what Ukraine expects from the United States, whether the United States perceives Ukraine as a partner, whether we will reach a new level of relations, whether the United States can help end the war in Europe,” Zelensky said.

At the same time, when Zelensky was asked about the needs of Ukraine from Washington, he mentioned the prospects of the membership in NATO.

“We are grateful for everything, but Ukraine is not just saying in words that it wants to be an equal member of the Alliance, an equal member of NATO, because this is one of the most important security points - the same security that President Biden is speaking about. How should we further state the desire to accede, if it is enshrined in the Constitution of Ukraine - the movement towards the European Union, European integration, as well as accession to NATO? Therefore, I have a very simple question - why is Ukraine still not in NATO? Putting away these phrases that we will all contemplate and communicate, the first simple question from me would be: "Mr. President, why are we not in NATO yet"?,” Zelensky noted.
