US President Joe Biden has said he is interested in talking to Russian President Vladimir Putin about the war in Ukraine. If Putin has any desire to end the nine-month war in Ukraine, then he is willing to sit down with him in dialogue.
This is the most open and positive message from the US on dialogue with Russia since the start of the war in Ukraine. Before this, the White House and Kremlin officials were questioned by the media about the possibility of talks between the two sides, but there was no clear positive answer.
The green signal from Biden on the question of talks with Putin came at a time when French President Emmanuel Macron is in the United States on a three-day official visit. This is the first visit to the US by a French president since the inauguration of Joe Biden. On the other hand, this is Makhon’s second official visit to the United States as president. Earlier, during Donald Trump’s presidency, he came to Washington on an official visit.
