Kremlin: Putin and Biden to meet in Geneva on June 16

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Joe Biden will meet in Geneva on June 16, the Kremlin's press service said on Tuesday.

"In accordance with the agreement reached, Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold talks with US President Joe Biden in Geneva on June 16," the news release says.

According to the press service, the Russian and U.S. leaders will raise several issues.

"They mean to discuss the current condition of Russian-U.S. relations and the outlook for their development, strategic stability, and crucial issues on the international agenda, such as interaction in the struggle against the coronavirus pandemic and the settlement of regional conflicts," the Kremlin said.

Geneva will host the first Putin-Biden meeting face to face since the U.S. leader's inauguration. The trip to Geneva will be Putin's first foreign visit since January 2020, when he traveled to Israel and Palestine.
