As stated by Spokesperson Matthew Miller:

Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken met with German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock today in Washington on the margins of the NATO Summit. Secretary Blinken and Foreign Minister Baerbock reaffirmed their ironclad support for Ukraine and discussed challenges posed by the People's Republic of China, including the PRC's support for Russia's military industrial base. The Secretary and the Foreign Minister discussed efforts to achieve an immediate ceasefire that would secure the release of hostages and ensure increased deliveries of humanitarian assistance in Gaza, as well as the importance of preventing further escalation in the Middle East and the shared threat posed by Iran. They also discussed progress made towards a peace agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan and emphasized the importance of finalizing a deal as soon as possible. The Secretary and Foreign Minister welcomed the announcement of the episodic deployment of conventional U.S. long-range fires in Germany starting in 2026 as part of planning for enduring stationing of these capabilities in the future.
