US President Joe Biden will be "straightforward and candid" with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky when they meet this afternoon, the White House says.

The pair will discuss the rationale for Nato's decision to not give a clear timeline for Ukraine to join Nato.

Zelensky has criticised Nato for what he sees as delays in setting out Ukraine's membership timeline - calling it "unprecedented and absurd" on Tuesday.

Biden "knows that President Zelensky has strong views and isn't afraid to express those views," White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said in an interview with MSNBC.

"And he, President Biden, also is very straightforward and honest and candid with president Zelensky. That will be the character of the meeting they have."
