U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin will have their first meeting in Geneva on June 16 since Biden took office in January, the White House and the Kremlin said on Tuesday.
"The leaders will discuss the full range of pressing issues, as we seek to restore predictability and stability to the U.S.-Russia relationship," the White House said in a statement.
The Kremlin said the two would discuss bilateral ties, problems related to strategic nuclear stability, and other issues, including cooperation in the fight against COVID-19 and regional conflicts.
