President Biden touched down in Brussels on Sunday evening ahead of two days of talks with NATO and European Union leaders as part of his first foreign trip as president.
Driving the news: Biden was greeted on the tarmac by Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo and a slate of other officials, including Douglas Jones and Mark Libby, the U.S. Permanent Representatives to NATO and the EU respectively.
- Biden will meet with NATO leaders on Monday and EU leaders on Tuesday, per Reuters.
- Also penciled into Biden's schedule Monday is a meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
The big picture: Biden's trip to Brussels is intended to "reassure allies that America is indeed back while also encouraging them to invest in their own defense," writes Axios' Dave Lawler.
