US President Joe Biden will give a press conference alone after meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva. This was reported by Reuters on Saturday, June 12, with reference to the statement of the White House.
“A personal press conference is an appropriate format to clearly communicate to the free press the topics that were raised at the meeting-both in terms of areas where we can agree, and in areas where we have serious concerns, “a Biden spokesman said, and expressed the expectation that the meeting would be” frank and direct.”
In turn, Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said about a separate press conference of the President of Russia.
Peskov assured that the absence of a joint press conference is not evidence of low expectations from the meeting, pointing to the statement of the American side.
