Chancellor Angela Merkel is in the US for probably the last visit before she leaves office, as severe flooding engulfs parts of western Germany. Nord Stream 2 was a key topic in her talks with President Joe Biden.
Merkel has warned that coronavirus restrictions may have to be reintroduced to curb a rise in cases. The chancellor also called for "patience" in the wake of last week's devastating floods.
The first stop on President Biden's eight-day European tour is the G7 summit in Cornwall, England. His main aim is to revive the transatlantic partnership and formulate a shared US-Europe stand on Russia.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been sworn in during a ceremony with no public in attendance amid security and pandemic concerns. Donald Trump is the first modern president to skip the event. Follow DW for the latest.
