Antony Blinken, the US Secretary of State, held a brief conversation with Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, on the sidelines the G-20 summit held in India. This was their first face-to-face meeting since Russia's invasion of Ukraine a year ago.
During the conversation, Blinken noted that the US would continue to support Ukraine even if the conflict in the country continues. He also urged Russia to reverse its decision to withdraw from the New Strategic Arms Treaty. Finally, the US would like to see the release of Paul David Whelan, an American who was arrested in Russia.
Joe Biden and Olaf Scholz, the German Chancellor, are scheduled to have a meeting on Friday at the White House.
During their meeting, the two leaders will also discuss the situation regarding China's plan to provide weapons to Russia. US officials have warned about this for a couple of weeks.
When asked if the leaders would discuss the issue of sanctions against China, Kirby noted that it would be brought up during the discussion about Ukraine.
Since the invasion of Ukraine, the Biden administration has provided over $31 billion in aid.
