US President Joe Biden will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin for their first summit in Geneva on June 16. The White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed this on Tuesday. Between the two countries, tensions between the US and Russia have been flared over several issues for a long time. The most important of these is the interference of Russia's intelligence agencies in the US presidential election. The US State Department has publicly accused Russia of interference in the 2020 elections.

On Tuesday, the White House press secretary, Jane Saki, confirmed the June 16 meeting. The two leaders will hold talks in Geneva, Switzerland. She said, "The leaders will discuss the full range of pressing issues, as we seek to restore predictability and stability to the US-Russia relationship."

Both leaders attended G20 summit virtually:

Prior to this meet, both leaders were involved in climate change and G20 meetings virtually. But, this will be the first time that the Presidents of the two countries will hold face-to-face talks. The US State Department said in February that Russia was the biggest threat to internal security.
