President Joe Biden held a press conference in Brussels on Thursday, during a trip to Europe amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
He took questions from reporters about concerns of growing food insecurity globally, as the two nations that are currently in conflict provide much of the world’s wheat.
“Can you say whether there’s the conversation is a turn to the subject of food shortages and what the US will do to address wheat shortages in particular, as a result of this?” Biden was asked.
“With regard to food shortages. Yes, we did talk about food shortages. And, and it’s gonna be real,” Biden said.
“The price of the sanctions is not just imposed upon Russia. It’s imposed upon an awful lot of countries as well. Including European countries and our country as well,” he went on.
