Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to hold a "live broadcast" dialogue with US President Biden.

Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to hold a “live broadcast” dialogue with US President Biden.

It is reported that Putin said in a live broadcast on Russian TV on Thursday that the last time he had a dialogue with Biden was initiated by Biden. He suggested that the dialogue between the leaders of the two countries should continue, but he hopes that there will be no reservations. Open conversations in “live-stream format”.

Putin said that he hopes that the dialogue will be held on March 19 or 22, but it can also be held at a time the US deems appropriate. He has instructed the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to carry out related work.

Putin said that nuclear powers shoulder the responsibility of maintaining global strategic security, and the peoples of Russia and the United States will be interested in this dialogue. It is hoped that the dialogue will involve issues such as relations between the two countries, strategic stability, epidemic prevention, and regional conflicts.

US White House Press Secretary Psaki said at a briefing on Thursday that Biden and Putin have known each other for many years, and the two have experienced many stages of US-Russian relations. Biden believes that he can continue to work with Putin on the development of relations between the two countries.

Russia-US relations have been in a state of tension in recent years, and there are obvious differences between the two countries on cybersecurity, energy security, arms control, and regional hotspot issues. The US intelligence agency issued a report on March 16 that Russia supported Trump during the 2020 US presidential election and suppressed the Biden campaign team. Russian Presidential Press Secretary Peskov said on the 17th that the United States’ accusation of Russia’s interference in the 2020 US presidential election is groundless and unproven. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on the 17th saying that it had recalled the Russian ambassador to the United States Antonov to discuss the prospects of Russian-US relations.
