Joe Biden has scheduled his first foreign trip since taking office, with hopes to repair relationships with traditional allies and partners.

Biden will begin his trip meeting with NATO allies and other G7 leaders in Europe. Discussions are expected to focus on relations with China and Russia, as well as the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Following his summit with allies, Biden is slated to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on June 16. The face-to-face meeting will take place in Geneva, with expected discussions including nuclear proliferation, the COVID-19 outbreak and the recent rise in cyberattacks. While Biden is anticipated to confront Putin, expectations for any substantial developments are low.

“There’s no sort of delusions that something’s going to come out of this meeting with Putin,” explained White House reporter Aamer Madhani. “The idea is that he clearly and deliberately says face to face to Putin what his concerns are and makes clear that he expects them to knock it off.”

Biden will depart for Europe on Wednesday and be making his first stop across the pond in the U.K.
