The agency said it will be announced at a meeting with U.S. President Biden and European Union leaders next week.

The U.S. and the EU are planning to launch a framework mechanism for coordinating policy toward Russia next week.

Russia is drawing increasing criticism from the West for violating international norms and the deteriorating human rights situation.

At a meeting with President Joe Biden and the leaders of the 27 EU countries in Brussels on June 15, they will say a “high-level EU-U.S. dialogue on Russia” will be created to coordinate policies and actions, according to draft summit conclusions seen by Bloomberg News.

Biden will travel to the EU-US summit immediately after the G7 meeting and a meeting of NATO leaders.

Biden will then meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva.
