A spokesperson for Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that there should be no high expectations from the talks between Russian and US Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden in Geneva on June 16, but even the beginning of their dialogue is a positive step, as TASS reports.
He considers this meeting very important, but "it would be wrong to lay too much hope."
"How great is the potential of our differences and even some conflicting moments in our bilateral relations, that it is not necessary to expect any progress in achieving understanding. But sometimes it is also useful to agree that we do not agree. Each of them will raise the issues he considers. And in any case, even the beginning of a dialogue at the highest level, despite the deplorable state of bilateral relations, is a very positive step," Peskov said.
It was reported that the meeting of U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian leader Vladimir Putin will take place in Geneva on June 16. Relevant information was confirmed by the Kremlin and the White House.
Putin and Biden are expected to discuss bilateral relations, strategic stability, as well as topical issues of the international order, the fight against the pandemic and the settlement of regional conflicts.
The number of recent cyberattacks heading against American and international organizations will become one of the topics for discussion at the upcoming summit.
