US President Joe Biden and his team are preparing for their first foreign tour and summits with NATO, the “seven” and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, he has decades of experience on which the head of the White House relies, said the official representative of the US administration Jen Psaki.
“He has been preparing for fifty years, he has been on the world stage, he knows a certain number of these leaders, including President Putin, including the leaders he will see at the NATO and G7 summit,” Psaki said at a briefing on how Biden is preparing for his first foreign tour starting this week.
Psaki said seeing the leaders in person is important because face-to-face conversations are most effective. “He (Biden) is involved in working with his team, talking about what bilateral contacts he will have, where the opportunities are, where the moments are, where it is necessary to express the concerns of the United States. He has several decades of experience, which he will count on in the continuation of the trip,” Psaki said.
