U.S. President Joe Biden intends to raise the issue of sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine at the summit with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. MSNBC reported that, citing National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.
“Joe Biden is a man of his word. He said he would respond to Russia’s harmful actions. And he did. He also said he wasn’t seeking to de-escalate, he wanted a stable relationship. He offered the opportunity to sit down with Vladimir Putin and the third country this summer to talk about a whole range of issues in our relationship, including the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine,” Sullivan said.
He noted that he would not hypothesize what can happen if Russia attacks Ukraine. According to Sullivan, President Biden has talked to Putin and expresses his concern over the build-up of the Russian military power. The president warned that the U.S. together with other partners will protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
