White House press secretary Jen Psaki shared the US administration’s expectations of a meeting between Russian and American Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden, which is scheduled for June. RIA Novosti reports her words.
According to Psaki, the United States does not expect the summit to help resolve all the problems and challenges in relations between the two countries. “We still look forward to difficult discussions in the future,” she said.
At the same time, the American side views the meeting as an opportunity to discuss areas where the countries have common interests, and “topics where we have concerns,” the spokeswoman added.
Earlier, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov reported that there is no fixed agenda for the talks between Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden. In addition, the parties agreed on a tete-a-tete conversation.
The meeting of the presidents of Russia and the United States will take place on June 16 in Geneva. The White House previously reported that one of the topics chosen by Biden for a conversation with Putin will be cybersecurity.
