U.S. President Joe Biden will meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “not in July, but, in August,” according to recent statements by George Kent, the U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) reported Tuesday.
“When President Biden and President Zelensky spoke for the second time, President Biden suggested that the meeting be held in July or later in the summer. That is, the meeting will be a little later. Not in July, but, I think, in August,” Kent told RFE/RL on July 17.
RFE/RL asked Kent “if there were any obstacles to the meeting between Zelensky and Biden.”
Objecting to the suggestion, Kent replied, “the only question now is to find time in President Biden’s schedule.”
“As I said, the meeting will be in the summer. But not now,” he said.
Kent referred to a much anticipated in-person meeting
