US president Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin will have their first face-to-face meeting in Switzerland on 16 June. The scene is Geneva. The White House and the Kremlin announced that on Tuesday.

Earlier, CNN reported the US-Russia summit next month on the basis of two anonymous officials. Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov stated that there is a need for Russia and the US to discuss cyber security and nuclear safety, among other things.

Biden was said to have proposed a summit with Putin last month, and since then both parties have worked together to agree on this. The American president would like to establish good communication with Russia. Putin seems benevolent about the summit.

Last week, the US and Russian foreign ministers, Antony Blinken and Sergei Lavrov, met at the Arctic summit in Iceland. At their first meeting, the two discussed cooperation between the two countries and, despite all the differences, saw opportunities for cooperation. This was the first meeting between a member of Biden’s government and a high-ranking Russian.

” We look at the world differently and it’s no secret that we sometimes face each other, but the world would become a lot safer if we could work together, ” Blinken said after the conversation. Lavrov joined. “We sometimes clash, but we can work together if our interests are in agreement.”
