Speaking to reporters, he said the exchange is scheduled for 18:00 local time, will be held via a protected video line and will not be broadcast live to the public.
“We will show, I think, the first moments of the conversation,” Peskov said, while indicating that “the entire dialogue will be held behind closed doors.”
Puting accompanied by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu are today in New Delhi consolidating political, economic and military relations with India.
Asked about the possibility of more people participating in the videoconference, Peskov noted that Putin’s talk with Biden will be a direct conversation between the two leaders, but that he cannot say for sure “who will be next to President Biden”.
He explained that in view of such a “serious” conversation like this one, Putin contacted the ministers and heads of relevant agencies. “That is why everyone involved in our bilateral relations of the current stage is always in contact with the Russian President,” he indicated.
Peskov denied that the Russian president plans to make statements following talks with Biden.
