Russian Foreign Ministry comments on potential joint statement after Putin-Biden summit
Russia is eyeing "many ideas" in the context of the forthcoming Putin-Biden summit, however, it is too early to talk anything concrete, for example, a possible joint statement, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told reporters on Wednesday.
"I’m not ready to comment on the content of the planned summit. There are many ideas, and we are working on all of them. So far, it is too early to talk about anything concrete," he emphasized when asked about a possible joint statement on the outcome of the Russian-U.S. summit.
Earlier, the Kremlin and the White House announced that the much-awaited summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Joe Biden would take place in Geneva, Switzerland, on June 16, TASS reported.
This will be the first face-to-face meeting between Putin and Biden since the 46th U.S. president took office. It will also be the first Russian-U.S. summit since July 2018, when Putin met with then U.S. President Donald Trump in Helsinki, Finland.
