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 on Wednesday.

“I believe that the priorities are to be identified within the current month. Also, they are to begin to implement them,” she said.

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. / TASS
