The United States admitted a meeting between American President Joe Biden and Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Prague, former American officials and experts told Politico.
According to the American publication, dark horses such as Reykjavik, Prague, Ljubljana, and, probably, Baku should not be ruled out as the venue of the negotiations of the heads of state.
Nevertheless, it is noted that the Czech authorities came up with an initiative to receive distinguished guests before relations between Moscow and Prague deteriorated sharply, which lowers the likelihood of choosing this place.
There are certain difficulties with other candidates as well. For example, the capital of Iceland has an active volcano, and it is difficult to get to it, Slovenia is a NATO member, and the armed conflict in Azerbaijan only recently ended. Experts said one of the traditional neutral venues, for example, Switzerland, Finland, or Austria, can be chosen as well.
Earlier, Biden expressed hope that he could meet with Vladimir Putin in June 2021.
