During a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, United States President Joe Biden stated his full support for Ukraine's territorial integrity and his commitment to the Minsk agreements.
"I communicated the United States' unwavering commitment to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine," said Biden during a briefing in Geneva.
Biden also expressed his commitment to the Minsk agreements.
"We agreed to pursue diplomacy related to the Minsk agreement," he said, further mentioning Belarus.
"And I shared our concern about Belarus. He didn't disagree with what happened. He just said it's a different perspective on what to do about it."
The summit consisted of three parts. Ukraine was expected to be one of the topics of talks between the American and Russian leaders. The U.S. delegation included U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The Kremlin noted that communication will be conditionally divided into three parts: in a narrow format (in the presence of Lavrov and Blinken), in an expanded format, and after a break for tea and coffee - the continuation of negotiations. In total, taking into account the breaks, the talks lasted around five hours.
