The meeting between Putin and Biden will take place in Geneva on June 16

The meeting of the Presidents of Russia and the United States, Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden, will take place on June 16 in Geneva, Switzerland. This was reported on the Kremlin website.

We intend to discuss the state and prospects for the further development of Russian-American relations, strategic stability issues, as well as topical issues on the international agenda, including interaction in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and the settlement of regional conflicts.

In turn, the press secretary of the White House Jen Psaki said that the leaders of the two countries “will discuss a whole range of pressing issues in an environment where we seek to restore predictability and stability in relations between the United States and Russia.”

This will be the first meeting between Putin and Biden since the latter was elected President of the United States. The last time the politicians met in 2011 in Moscow: then Putin was prime minister, and Biden was vice president. 

In March, Joe Biden gave an affirmative answer to a journalist’s question about whether he considered Putin a “killer.” A day later, Putin responded with a teaser “who calls himself names, he is called that.” 

Putin’s bilateral meeting with former US President Donald Trump was held only once – in 2018 in Helsinki.

  • From Fox News:
    “The meeting is expected to take place on June 16, when Biden and Putin are slated to discuss issues like Iran and North Korea’s nuclear capabilities, Syria, the Arctic, strategic stability, arms control, climate change, COVID-19 and more.”

    If that is the list from the White House then this will be a snoozer. Probably in private and off the record too. How did climate change and arms control get onto the agenda when Putin is illegally occupying 5 regions in Europe? I worry Biden would throw Ukraine under the bus for a climate change pact with Putin that he will violate anyway, and with a smile…

    Maybe we and Ukraine will get lucky and Biden will bore the runt to death … really to death.
