On Tuesday, the Kremlin said it will make an announcement shortly about a potential meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Joe Biden, Reuters reports.

On a conference call with reporters, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow and Washington wanted to work together on cybersecurity to deter hackers who ill-wishers say work for the Russian government.

He also said that the two men should address strategic nuclear security, which has global implications.

Biden, who called Putin a “terrorist” in March, prompting Moscow to recall its ambassador to Washington for consultations, has said he would like to meet with him on a trip to Europe scheduled for next month.

The summit will be held in Switzerland, according to the Swiss daily Tages-Anzeiger, which cited sources.
