CHANCELLOR SCHOLZ:  So, it’s very good to have you here.  (Inaudible) we can really do important things (inaudible) special time.
 
PRESIDENT BIDEN:  Well, there’s a lot to do.  And I want to compliment you on stepping up as you did when you became chancellor and moving in the way that you — had a great impact on the rest of Europe to move, particularly as it related to Ukraine. 
 
And you’re — you’re one of our fastest and closest allies in the world, and we got to make sure we have this — us all staying together.  You know we’re going to continue working on the economic challenges we face, but I think we can get through all this —
 
CHANCELLOR SCHOLZ:  Yeah.
 
PRESIDENT BIDEN:  — and come out stronger.
 
CHANCELLOR SCHOLZ:  And the good message is that we all made it to stay united, which obviously Putin never expected.
 
PRESIDENT BIDEN:  And that was in no small part because of you — no small part because of you.  Seriously.  Because there was a lot of discussion of whether or not, in the transition — how it was going to work.  But you’ve done an incredible job.  I want to thank you for it.  Thank you, thank you.
 
We have to stay together —
 
CHANCELLOR SCHOLZ:  Yeah.
 
PRESIDENT BIDEN:  — because Putin has been counting on, from the beginning, that somehow NATO would — and the G7 would splinter.  And — but we haven’t, and we’re not going to. 
 
So, we can’t let this aggression take the form it has and get away with it.
 
So, thank you.
 
CHANCELLOR SCHOLZ:  Thank you.
