FAST FIVE: Biden "Not Going To Hold Back" In Expected Tense Putin Meeting: White House
Biden “Not Going To Hold Back” In Expected Tense Putin Meeting: White House Authored by Dave DeCamp via AntiWar.com, The US continues to downplay expectations for the upcoming summit between President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin that is scheduled for June 16th in Geneva.
Via Sputnik/Reuters “We're not expecting to have a huge outcome from this,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said of the summit in an interview with ABC.
Psaki made it clear that Biden will take a confrontational approach to the meeting.
But besides agreeing to extend New START, the Biden administration hasn't taken any steps to foster new treaties.
Last month, the US told Russia it would not rejoin Open Skies after Moscow's attempts to salvage the mutual surveillance treaty that the Trump administration withdrew from in 2020.
