The two men are expected to discuss the June 14th NATO summit in Brussels.
“As we have said, revitalizing our alliances is a priority for this administration and our alliance with NATO is a big part of that,” Psaki said.
Psaki said the upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin was “not expected” to solve every issue the two countries have between them.
Asked about the status of a report on unidentified flying objects, Psaki said “we take reports of incursions into our air space by any aircraft – identified or unidentified – very seriously and investigate each one.”
