US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet in Geneva on June 16, the White House and the Kremlin say, amid sharp disputes between the two countries.
"The leaders will discuss the full range of pressing issues as we seek to restore predictability and stability to the US-Russia relationship," White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.
The Kremlin said in a statement that the two leaders would discuss bilateral ties, problems related to strategic nuclear stability and other issues including cooperation in the fight against COVID-19 and regional conflicts.
Biden has previously said he wants Putin to stop trying to influence US elections, stop cyber attacks on US networks emanating from Russia, stop threatening Ukraine's sovereignty and release jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.
Russian officials told Reuters they view the summit as an opportunity to hear from Biden directly after what a source close to the Russian government said were mixed messages from the US administration that took office on January 20.
Putin views US pressure on Navalny and its support for pro-democracy activists in Russia and Belarus as tantamount to interfering in Russian domestic affairs.
Officials in Moscow are also unhappy about a raft of US sanctions aimed at Russian entities and individuals - and Biden's threat of more.
