US President Joe Biden said in an interview with CNN that he sees no good reason to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit. However, the head of the White House did not rule out such a possibility – everything will depend on the subject of the conversation.
The American leader noted that if Putin offered him to discuss the imprisoned American basketball star Brittney Greener, then Biden would agree to a meeting.
Biden stated his position regarding the meeting with Putin in the context of the heavy bombing of Ukrainian cities in recent days , in which at least 19 people were killed and more than 100 injured throughout the country, hundreds of kilometers from the main theaters of war in eastern and southern Ukraine.
