Russian President Vladimir Putin is going to Geneva, Switzerland, not merely to appear on the same platform as US President Joe Biden, but because "the poor state of relations" between both countries demands a summit, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told CNN in an exclusive interview on Friday.

Moscow (CNN)Russian President Vladimir Putin is going to Geneva, Switzerland, not merely to appear on the same platform as US President Joe Biden, but because "the poor state of relations" between both countries demands a summit, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told CNN in an exclusive interview on Friday.

Next week's high-stakes summit in Geneva comes as relations between both nations hit recent new lows in the first few months of the Biden administration.

Putin is not expecting a joint press conference at the end of the summit but he is ready for one, Peskov said, adding that negotiations were continuing on the final format of the summit and no final decision has been reached, he said.

Last week, Putin said he was not expecting a breakthrough in relations following the summit.

For Biden, the Geneva summit aims to facilitate a more stable and predictable diplomatic relationship with Russia.

After the G7 wraps Sunday, Biden heads to Brussels for the NATO summit followed by his meeting with Putin.
