The exchange stemmed from an ABC News interview the President gave last Wednesday, in which Biden was pressed on whether he thought Putin had poisoned the Russian leader's opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
On Thursday, Putin mocked Biden's comments by saying "it takes one to know one" and wishing the 78-year-old "good health". "But, you know, again, we have our freedoms and we have to live by that, and I agree with that also", Trump said in remarks on Fox News earlier this week.
"It would be unwise for President Biden to ignore Putin's invitation to talk".
Putin, responding to Biden's characterisation of him, said he knew the USA leader personally, and, in an apparent reference to Biden's age (78), said he sincerely wished him good health. The two leaders last spoke by telephone on January 26, days after Biden took office.
"We are ready any time that is convenient for the American side", Putin added.

"Since there were others who believed the story and in so doing, took the focus off how the Democrats lost an election to Donald Trump and the Republicans, it remains a convenient distraction for continued failures of either the Democrats or the Republicans to take care of the vast majority of people in the USA either through the establishment of a living wage or a national health insurance program and more", she said.
