Berlin welcomes the results of the meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Biden in Geneva. This was announced by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Merkel noted the need to continue the exchange of views on various world issues.
I believe that despite all the contradictions in the world, we must constantly keep open channels for dialogue, clearly state our positions and interests, and then look at what the solutions are, вЂњ the German Chancellor stressed at a joint press conference with U.S. Secretary Anthony Blinken.
The Putin-Biden summit was held on June 16 in Geneva. The government agreed to continue negotiations on strategic stability.
Earlier, Angela Merkel proposed to hold a meeting between the leaders of the European Union and Russian President Vladimir Putin. A similar idea was voiced by the ambassadors of Germany and France during a meeting of the Committee of Permanent Representatives of the EU in Brussels.
The initiative drew criticism from several European countries, but French President Emmanuel Macron supported the idea.
