Press Briefing by Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, May 18, 2022

  MS. JEAN-PIERRE:  Good afternoon, everybody.  Sorry we’re starting a little late.  We had to finish for the President to complete his remarks, and that was a request that we got from WHCA, so we wanted to make sure we adhered to it. As you all know, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan is here.  He’s going to take your questions, preview Asia.  And he has a hard out at 2:30, so we’re going to try and get him out of here. Okay, all yours. MR. SULLIVAN:  And I have 20 minutes of remarks, so — (laughter) — I hope you guys will bear with me. I actually do have a number of things to get through because we have quite a stretch ahead here with respect to the President’s foreign policy and national security priorities. Very good to be back with you guys today. Today, Finland and Sweden submitted their applications for NATO membership.  President Biden has welcomed those applications, and he looks forward to working with NATO Allies and with Congress on a swift accession process.  (Audio p
