According to Moscow, Biden reportedly asked Vladimir Putin for a recent conference of the top agents from both Russia and the United States. Late in the previous year was when the meeting took place.
Midway through the month of November, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), William Burns, and the Director of the Russian Intelligence Agency (SVR), Sergey Naryshkin, met on Turkish land. During a news conference on Wednesday, Russian Minister Of foreign affairs Sergey Lavrov noted the occurrence when addressing the absence of peace talks in Ukraine. Lavrov was analyzing the situation in Ukraine. According to him, the United States government has not yet presented a "serious suggestion" about how to resolve the current crisis.
Lavrov indicated that there were "no disclosures" during the conversations that took place between Burns and Naryshkin. "In general, during rare meetings with Russia on different levels, the West mentions nothing that stretches outside its public stance," he said. "In other words, the West is not saying anything that would contradict its official position."
The most senior Russian ambassador had earlier expressed regret over the fact that details about the meeting of the two heads of intelligence had been shared with the public.
Last month, he made this statement to the media: "The Americans themselves told us 10 times that this method of communication was totally confidential and should not be disclosed... so that it would not be sullied by some propagandistic spin," he said. "The Americans told us many times that this communication channel was absolutely confidential and shouldn't be disclosed."
"It was settled. However, as soon as they arrived in Ankara, the story began to spread quickly around the city. I have no idea where it came from; I don't know whether it was the State Department or the White House," he said.
