Biden to hold solo presser after Putin meeting - WH

United States President Joe Biden will hold a solo press conference following his meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Geneva on June 16, the White House told US media on Saturday.

The solo press conference will be "the appropriate format to clearly communicate with the free press the topics that were raised in the meeting," Washington claimed. The meeting will consist of "a working session and a smaller session," according to the White House.

After the US announcement, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov noted that holding separate press conferences is "the practice of the American side," revealing that Putin will also speak to the "Kremlin pool and other media outlets."
