Biden hopes for progress in upcoming negotiations with Russia: White House

Washington: US President Joe Biden has expressed hope that the security guarantees negotiations with Russia will result in significant progress.

On late Thursday, Biden held a phone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which the leaders agreed to hold security guarantees talks in three formats: in Vienna, Geneva and Brussels.

“Well, I got the sense of is that he’s agreed that we would have three major conferences in Europe in the beginning of the middle of the month … He laid out some of his concerns about NATO and the United States and Europe, we laid out ours. I made it clear that they only could work if he deescalated … Well, I always expect to negotiate and make progress,” Biden said on late Friday, as quoted by the White House.
