So, representatives of the media asked whether this summit will take place during Biden’s European tour in early summer.
“I am sure that we will be able to do this, but there is no specific time or place yet, we are working on it,” the president said.
Reporters also asked Biden whether he considers the presence of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine a “signal” for the United States. The head of state in response indicated that this situation does not affect his desire to meet with Putin. At the same time, he stressed that Washington sees a reduction in the number of troops, “they are significantly less than a month ago.”
Biden in mid-April proposed to his Russian counterpart to hold a bilateral meeting in Europe in the summer to discuss the accumulated issues.
