American organizations called on US President Joe Biden to hold “constructive talks” with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Representatives of 27 associations sent a collective letter to the head of the White House. They admitted that they were “deeply alarmed” by the situation and called on Joe Biden to start a dialogue with his colleague Vladimir Putin to “address the threats of the nuclear arms race.”
Alan Minsky, executive director of the Progressive Democrats of America, noted that members of the Democratic Party do not support an aggressive foreign policy towards Russia. According to him, the Americans want “a secure world with international cooperation.”
Minsky stressed that today the US administration faces a much more serious task – to recover from the coronavirus pandemic. The expert recalled that last year, COVID-19 dealt a severe blow to the country’s economy and the public health system.
“We cannot tolerate saber-rattling in the Cold War,” he said.
Recall that in mid-March, Joe Biden gave a long interview, where he attacked Russia with accusations. The US President responded positively to the question whether he considers his colleague Vladimir Putin to be a murderer, and reported on the Kremlin’s attempts to interfere in the elections.
The head of Russia, in turn, wished Joe Biden health, and noted that everyone sees their own qualities in the people around them. Vladimir Putin added that in the children’s phrase “Whoever calls his name, he himself is called that”, in fact, has a deep meaning.
