“If that were the case, then in consultation with my French friends and my friends from NATO, I would be happy to sit down with Putin to see what’s on his mind. He hasn’t done it yet.” he told you joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Biden’s remarks were a sign of Washington’s openness to dialogue with the Kremlin on the war in Ukraine, but Moscow “of course” rejected the proposal today, interpreting this as implying the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine, an option Russia is not considering.

Kirby also denied that the US is pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to resume talks with Moscow.

The president has not indicated at all that the time has come to hold talks“, said the American official according to the Athens News Agency. “The war could end today without negotiations if Putin did the right thing and was leaving Ukraine. His troops have no business there.”
