President Biden met with a small group of CEOs from some of the biggest U.S. energy, food and manufacturing companies at the White House on Monday to talk about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The CEOs were in Washington for a meeting of the Business Roundtable. They were briefed on Russia’s war in Ukraine by Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, top economic adviser Brian Deese and senior adviser Cedric Richmond.

They also discussed the need to “mitigate price increases on American consumers” caused by the war and the need to address disruptions to energy and agricultural markets, the White House said in a statement.
