Biden considers holding new summit with Putin possible

WASHINGTON, Jan. 20 (YPA) – US President Joe Biden said on Thursday that he is considering the possibility of a new summit with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

“Yes, I still think such a possibility exists,” he said at a press conference.

Joe Biden had warned of a “catastrophe” if Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, expecting the Russian president to take action inside Ukraine, but said a full-scale invasion would lead to a large-scale response that would be costly for Russia and its economy.

“My expectation is that he will move… He has to do something.”

Russia would be held accountable and would face disaster if it invaded Ukraine.

Earlier Wednesday evening, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, speaking before the US  Embassy in Kiev, said Washington would prefer to resolve the situation with Moscow on Ukraine peacefully.
