The Kremlin Is Decidedly Chilly on the Idea of a Biden-Putin Meeting

April 29 , 2021 (EIRNS)—Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded as follows to a reporter’s question yesterday about the prospects for the proposed Biden-Putin summit:

“There hasn’t been an official answer. We are still studying this proposal and analyzing the situation.... The situation calls for an in-depth analysis, because each time the words about a summit in the statements of [our] U.S. colleagues come along, they are joined by words about Russia’s need to pay some price or words that some new sanctions are inevitable.”

Peskov was then asked about rumors that the meeting might not take place at all, to which he responded: “There should be no room for hypothetical arguments, because the situation at hand is specific, and it needs to be analyzed.”
