Presidents Biden and Putin To Meet in Geneva on June 16

Posted by

Talks between Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden will be held on June 16 in Geneva, Switzerland. They intend to discuss the state and prospects for the further development of bilateral relations, issues of strategic stability, as well as interaction in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and the settlement of regional conflicts. The upcoming meeting may pave the way for improving relations between Moscow and Washington. It is possible that the leaders of the two countries will agree to “zero out” the diplomatic conflict – they will normalize the work of diplomatic missions.

“The leaders will discuss a range of pressing issues as we strive to restore predictability and stability in US-Russian relations,” said Jen Psaki, White House spokesman, in a written statement. She later clarified that the United States expects to discuss strategic stability, arms control, Ukraine, and Belarus at the summit. At the same time, Psaki noted that the White House does not consider Russia involved in the forced landing of a Ryanair airliner in Minsk.

While the Biden-Putin summit will not lead to a breakthrough in US-Russian cooperation, it could set the stage for better relations, and can be expected that both sides will express their grievances in a rational and respectful way.
