Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he will discuss the developments in Libya and Syria with his American counterpart, Joe Biden during a meeting in Geneva next Wednesday.

Putin said during an interview with the Russian newstation Vesti, that he would like to discuss "the issue of regional conflicts, mainly Syria and Libya, as well as issues related to environmental protection and other global issues."

Ahead of the summit, Biden asserted that his Russian counterpart was right to say that relations between their two countries had deteriorated and reached their lowest levels, citing Putin's "failure, in many cases, to act in accordance with international standards."

Stated Biden said that the United States "does not seek to clash with Russia," adding that "the United States should work with Russia on Libya".

Ankara is playing an anti-Moscow role in a number of regional conflicts including Libya and Syria, especially as Turkish military support in both countries has proved decisive against Russia's armed forces.

On the eve of his arrival in Brussels for the NATO summit, Erdogan told reporters that the talks with Putin "focus on future cooperation between the two allied countries and how to turn the page on divisions and strained relations and discuss military issues during the meeting."
