Today, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand will meet with President Joe Biden at the White House. This is the first visit from a New Zealand leader since 2014.

Press Secretary Karine Jean- Pierre said of the meeting, “The President and Prime Minister will continue to advance the U.S.-New Zealand partnership and their shared vision of a free and open Indo-Pacific.“

She continued, “The two Leaders will discuss strengthening cooperation to support the Pacific Islands region, and our work together on a range of issues, including the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework, addressing the climate crisis, and countering terrorism and radicalization to violence both off and online. Vice President Harris will also meet with Prime Minister Ardern at the White House.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for the president and prime minister as they discuss New Zealand’s gun control measures.
  • For God’s purposes to be accomplished through the meeting between the two leaders.
  • For discernment for the president and his advisors as circumstances develop in the Indo-Pacific region.
