US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has arrived in Reykjavik, Iceland, where he will join talks on climate change and take part in an Arctic Council ministerial meeting.

The State Department said Blinken will meet with Icelandic President Guðni Jóhannesson and Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir to discuss US-Icelandic priorities related to crimate chan ... climate change, human rights, bilateral cooperation and the Arctic.

On the sidelines of the Arctic Council ministerial meeting, Blinken will have his first face-to-face encounter with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Wednesday.

The meeting comes at a time of heightened tensions between the United States and Russia and will set the stage for a planned summit next month between US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The State Department says the meeting between Blinken and Lavrov is an opportunity to discuss building a, [quote] “more in… more predictable relationship with Russia and areas of mutual interest.”

Before traveling to Iceland, Blinken was in Denmark where he held talks about economic security and climate issues as well as the Biden administration's ongoing push to boost ties with US allies.
