The White House has no confirmed details of a possible meeting between U.S. Presidents Joe Biden and Russian Presidents Vladimir Putin.

This was announced by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki at a press briefing on May 5, 2021.

"As soon as we have details or any confirmed details of timing, location, date, participation, we will of course share that with you," she told the journalists present at the briefing.

"And I would expect we wouldn't have more specifics on an agenda, if and when we have it confirmed, until much closer," she added.
