( – On Friday President Biden and Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar had a meeting where they discussed calls for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war “as soon as possible.” 

Varadkar had argued that he was looking forward to discussing the war in Gaza with Biden. The meeting had taken place in the White House as part of the celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish Prime Minister argued that in his view it was necessary for them to have a cease-fire so that they were able to deliver aid, food, and medicine as swiftly as possible, as well as have the hostages returned. 

Biden interjected during this statement to express agreement.
Varadkar continued by arguing that they needed to discuss the ways in which they could make sure that would happen as they move forward with a possible two-state solution. He added that this was the only way that he believed peace in the region could be achieved. 

Biden also agreed with that statement. 

There is a lot of pressure on both leaders from their respective countries for a cease-fire, while the calls to have the hostages returned have also increased. There is also a strong push by the international community to ensure that Palestinians in Gaza will be able to receive aid. 

Following Biden’s State of the Union address, where he had been caught on a hot mic conversation with Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), who had pushed for him to put pressure on Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the humanitarian crisis in Gaza continued to worsen, Biden had argued that he had told Netanyahu that they would have a “come-to-Jesus meeting.”
