White House: Biden to meet Putin for Geneva summit

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden will hold a summit with Vladimir Putin next month in Geneva, a face-to-face meeting between the two leaders that comes amid escalating tensions between the U.S. and Russia in the first months of the Biden administration. The White House confirmed details of the summit on Tuesday. The two leaders’ scheduled meeting on June 16 is being tacked on to the end of Biden’s first international trip as president next month when he visits Britain for a meeting of Group of Seven leaders and Brussels for the NATO summit. Biden first proposed a summit in a call with Putin in April.
