According to Bloomberg, a White House official earlier confirmed that Biden would speak to reporters alone after the meeting, indicating that this would be the “most appropriate” format.
Responding to a request from journalists to comment on the decision of the American side, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov noted that earlier this format of communication of the head of the White House with the press has already been practiced.
“As we know, the US president also held a separate press conference in England. They did not hold a joint press conference with (British Prime Minister) Boris Johnson … As we have previously stated, President Putin will also contact the press separately after the talks,” Dmitry Peskov told. The meeting of Russian and US Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden will take place in Geneva, Switzerland. The negotiations will take place on June 16. The Kremlin said it does not expect any breakthroughs from the summit, given that the potential for disagreements is very high.
