Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden plans to address the strained US-Russia diplomatic relationship when he meets President Vladimir Putin next week with the hope that the two leaders can agree to send their ambassadors back to Washington and Moscow after months with no senior diplomat being present in either country, according to three sources familiar with the plans.

A State Department spokesperson said that Sullivan will "return to Moscow in the coming weeks" and that the US remains committed to "open channels of communication with the Russian government, both to advance US interests and to reduce the risk of miscalculation between our countries. "

Sending the ambassadors back to the capital cities of Cold War foes is viewed as a necessary step to keep open working-level dialogue between the two countries which will be pivotal as the Biden administration seeks a stable and predictable relationship with Russia, US officials told CNN.

The limits in place could impede the US from developing Russia experts in the diplomatic corps who know how to interpret Russian signals, two US officials explained.

This is one reason the Biden administration is seeking to rebuild a more steady and regular US-Russia diplomatic relationship, the officials said.

"Embassies without ambassadors and diplomats increase the likelihood that the US-Russia relationship will continue to slide toward crisis. "
