DrRussian President Vladimir Putin hopes that his summit meeting with US President Joe Biden will improve badly damaged relations with the United States. “We have to find a way to organize these relations, which are currently at a very weak level,” Putin said Friday at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum. Biden and Putin will meet on June 16 in Geneva, Switzerland.
“We will talk about strategic stability and the settlement of international conflicts,” Putin said. Topics of disarmament and the coronavirus pandemic, as well as environmental issues, will also be discussed. “We have no differences with the United States, they have only one: they want to curb our development, and all other tensions stem from this situation,” Putin stressed.
The face-to-face meeting comes amid the biggest crisis in relations between the two countries in years. During the conversation, Biden also wants to address hacker attacks from Russia, the human rights situation and interference in US elections.
