Joe Biden, who won the elections held in the USA on 3 November 2020, took an oath at the ceremony held yesterday and took office as the 46th President of the USA. While the eyes of all countries are turned to the new President of the USA, Biden, Russia continues to follow the political developments in the USA closely.
Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitri Peskov answered Russian journalists’ questions about whether there will be a meeting between Biden and Putin. Peskov said that a meeting between Biden and Putin is not yet planned. Pointing out that the leaders have reduced bilateral talks due to the corona virus outbreak, Peskov said, “The Putin and Biden meeting has not been on the agenda so far, and no preliminary preparation has been made for such a meeting. International face-to-face meetings have been greatly reduced due to the epidemic. For this reason, such a contact is not planned at the moment ”he said.
On the other hand, Peskov emphasized that Biden’s presidency will not change anything for Russia and said, “Russia will continue to seek good relations with the US as it has been for years. “Whether there will be a political will from Washington for Russia’s efforts is entirely up to Biden and his team.”
EXPLANATION FROM RUSSIA’S US AMBASSADOR ANTONOV
Russian Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov, who attended the inauguration ceremony of Biden held at the Congress building in Washington yesterday, said, “I carefully listened to Biden’s speech at the inauguration ceremony. I hope that a new era has begun in Russian and US relations. We have repeatedly stated that we hope a new page will be opened in terms of Russian and US relations ”.
