Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Joe Biden will hold a video chat next Tuesday, the Russian presidency reported.
Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a press statement that “Putin and Biden will hold a video meeting next Tuesday,” according to the local “Sputnik” agency.
He added that “the meeting will be held with the aim of discussing the Ukrainian file and a wide range of other topics.”
In response to a question about the exact date of the meeting, Peskov said, “It will be in the evening. The two presidents will set the date themselves.”
Preparations for the second summit between the two presidents come at a time when the two sides affirm their quest to improve relations between the two countries.
This is after it has fallen to its worst situation since the Cold War period, according to the Kremlin.
On June 16, Putin and Biden held their first summit in Geneva, which lasted about 4 hours, during which they agreed to return the ambassadors of the two countries after they had been previously summoned.
After meeting Biden at the time, Putin said that there is a glimmer of hope for building mutual trust, and all the issues discussed can be agreed upon.
