Biden: U.S. does not want conflict with Russia

The United States does not want a conflict with Russia yet intends to respond to those actions by Moscow it considers unfriendly, U.S. President Joe Biden said at a meeting with British servicemen upon his arrival in the UK on Wednesday.

The U.S. president said that at his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva next week, he would "let him know what I want him to know." "We're not seeking conflict with Russia," he explained.

"We want a stable and predictable relationship, [...] but I've been clear: the United States will respond in a robust and meaningful way if the Russian government engages in harmful activities," he said at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk.

As the Kremlin and the White House reported earlier, the meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Joe Biden will take place on June 16 in Geneva.
