“Secure video call with President Vladimir Putin of Russia started at 10:07 AM,” according to the White House.
Today’s virtual meeting is the first conversation between the leaders since their summit in Switzerland. President Biden said after their meeting in Geneva “Where we have differences, I wanted President Putin to understand why I say what I say and why I do what I do, and how we’ll respond to specific kinds of actions that harm America’s interests.” That statement, according to the White House “remains true today.”
A senior administration official told the Pavlovic Today that President Biden “will obviously raise our concerns with Russia’s military buildup and plans, with respect to Ukraine. The agenda will also cover a number of other critical issues including strategic stability, cyber, and Iran’s nuclear program.”
While the United States “does not seek conflict” with Russia, Biden will continue, if necessary, to impose “meaningful consequences for harmful and destabilizing actions.”
The strategic cooperation with Russia the Biden administration sees in the area of strategic stability and arms control.
