The Kremlin: We are studying the US proposal to hold a summit that brings together President Putin and his counterpart Biden

The Kremlin said on Wednesday that it would study the US proposal to hold a summit bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Biden.

In turn, Jan Gamacic, First Deputy Prime Minister and Acting Foreign Minister, directed the Czech ambassadors to Moscow and Washington to offer his country's capital as a venue for a possible Putin-Biden summit.

Gamacic wrote on his Twitter page: “I responded to the statement of (US President Joe) Biden who proposed to hold a personal meeting with (Russian President Vladimir) Putin on the territory of a third country, and I directed our ambassadors in both Washington and Moscow to offer Prague, which had previously hosted the Obama summit. Medvedev is a possible venue for this meeting. "

Earlier in the day, the office of Finnish President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Finland's readiness to host a possible meeting between the Russian and US presidents.

For its part, the Kremlin confirmed that it would study a proposal to hold the Biden-Putin summit, noting that it was premature to talk about any details of the possible summit.

During his phone call with Putin on Tuesday, Biden raised the idea of ​​holding a Russian-American summit on the territory of a third country "to discuss all outstanding issues between the United States and Russia," according to a statement issued by the White House.
