President Joe Biden is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin next month in their first face-to-face meeting since Biden became president.

The day-long summit is scheduled for June 16 and is to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, and will cover a wide range of topics, including nuclear proliferation, Russian interference in U.S. elections, climate change, and covid-19, according to The Washington Post.

Biden is also expected to raise concerns over reports of Russian amassing troops on its border with Ukraine.

The meeting with Putin will come at the end of Biden's first international trip as president. Biden is set to meet with a G-7 summit in England then travel to Brussels, Belgium, to attend meetings with Nato and the European Union.
