Russia expects US to shape its policy within a month

Moscow: Moscow expects that the United States’ Joe Biden-led administration will make up its mind regarding its policy on the Russian track within a month’s time, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told the Ekho Moskvy radio station in an interview this week.

Zakharova recalled that so far there had been only telephone conversations between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden and between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
“The way I see it, not only the team, but the approaches are still in the making. No approaches have been announced to the key issues, at least, those on the international agenda, yet,” she added.

The current US president, Joe Biden, was sworn in on January 20. The process of key personnel appointments and approval of Biden’s nominees by the Senate of the US Congress is continuing.
