KEIR SIMMONS: I don't— I don't— I don't think I heard you answer the question, the direct question— Mr. President.

Ahead of his highly anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Joe Biden agreed Sunday that U.S.-Russian relations are at a "low point" and said he was open to a prisoner exchange with Moscow to clamp down on cybercrime. I think he is right it is a low point," Biden said about Putin's recent assessment of the Moscow-Washington relationship. In a statement last week, Trump asked Biden to "please give [Putin] my warmest regards" and defended his "great and very productive meeting in Helsinki." Biden and Putin will hold separate news conferences after their meeting in Switzerland, a sign of the chillier relationship. "There's a lot going on where we can work together with Russia," Biden said.

The vast majority of the victims were overseas when they came down with the unusual symptoms. U.S. diplomats and other government workers stationed in Havana reported feeling strange symptoms, many after hearing strange high- and low-pitched sounds and experiencing bizarre physical sensations. In an interview Tuesday, John Bolton, a former national security adviser in the Trump administration, said he had no doubt the people who reported symptoms were victims of an energy attack. Among the sponsors of the legislation are the Democratic and Republican co-chairs of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has received classified briefings from administration officials about the ongoing threat. “There is no doubt that the victims who have suffered brain injuries must be provided with adequate care and compensation.

Their charter plane suffered mechanical problems due to cicadas. A replacement plane had to be called in, and eventually the press corps took off from Dulles International Airport for the United Kingdom early Wednesday morning after waiting more than six hours to depart. Another reason to dislike cicadas: “cicada strike”disabled White House press plane set to depart for G7 in Cornwall last night. They are members of Brood X — the largest group of cicadas that live on 17-year cycles, which includes three species. NBC News foreign correspondent Molly Hunter, based in London, reacted to the delay of the press plane on Twitter, saying: “Good news: no cicadas on this side!”

Watch the exclusive interview with Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield on "Andrew Mitchell Reports" at noon ET. If the crossing, which goes into the Syrian rebel-held province of Idlib, were to close, millions of Syrian refugees would lose access to critical humanitarian assistance. Thomas-Greenfield said she felt “a sense of desperation” as she witnessed what was happening at the crossing, which is the only way coronavirus vaccines can be sent across the border into Syria. The Security Council will have to vote to extend the resolution authorizing the use of the crossing past July 10, when it expires. Thomas-Greenfield’s said she has a positive message for her Russian counterpart: “I have seen firsthand the importance of this border crossing, and the needs that are being addressed in this border crossing, and you don't want on your shoulders the desperation of the people on the other side of the border.”

WASHINGTON — White House and other Biden administration officials tell NBC News that President Joe Biden has selected former Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Nides to be U.S. ambassador to Israel. One administration official says Nides has already been offered the position. A White House spokesperson told NBC they were not commenting at this time, and that no nomination is final until it is announced. It’s unclear when the White House will publicly announce Nides’ nomination, but he’ll have a difficult portfolio awaiting him if he’s confirmed by the Senate. Word of his selection came as Secretary of State Antony Blinken is traveling to Israel and the West Bank to try to shore up a fragile cease-fire between Hamas and Israel.

Administration officials feared a long fight, and some were concerned that the Israelis would follow through with threats of a ground invasion into Gaza. After their calls Monday and Wednesday, the White House was privately conveying that the conversations had become more tense. When Murphy and Kaine called for a cease-fire, Israeli officials knew the pressure was going to mount. Despite the growing criticism from Congress, the White House took a light approach to Capitol Hill. 'Quiet and relentless diplomacy'"They're a closed group," a Democrat close to the White House said of the Biden team.

The view from the West Wing is that it's time for Netanyahu to start winding down, according to a White House official familiar with the president's position. The evolution of Biden's messaging is aimed at letting Americans know where he stands without ratcheting up too much public pressure on Israel, the official said. The question now is whether the new Democratic president has real influence on the Israeli leader. At the same time, many progressives see Palestinians as a people oppressed by Israel, and their perspective has gained traction and volume within Democratic circles. The White House official said that the administration believes Israel already has accomplished its military objective.

WASHINGTON — For President Joe Biden, the eruption of violence between Israel and the Palestinians is a crisis he not only did not expect, but was not prepared to confront. Dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which has bedeviled generations of American presidents, was, according to White House officials, a much less urgent matter. The violence has extended to conflict between Israeli Arabs and Jews in communities across Israel, well beyond the Palestinian territories. Netanyahu has defended the strike as warranted, claiming that the building also housed Hamas military intelligence, without revealing the basis for that claim. But U.S. efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians face a number of notable hurdles — starting at the top.

Colonial Pipeline paid the hackers who shut down some of its networks nearly $5 million in ransom, a U.S. official familiar with the matter said Thursday. The U.S. official did not say how or when the company paid. The FBI has historically discouraged, but not prohibited, American ransomware victims from paying hackers, as a payment isn’t guaranteed to work and can encourage criminals to continue attacking others. “The federal government, we discourage the payment of ransoms, because the prolific payment of ransoms encourages ransomware." Mandiant doesn’t directly pay ransomware gangs on clients’ behalf, a spokesperson for the company said, but acknowledges victims can choose to do so.

The number of racial or ethnic minorities in top slots at the State Department actually decreased during the last four years, after some incremental progress under the three previous administrations. In 2008, 8.6 percent of senior foreign service officers were Black, but by December, that figure stood at just 3 percent. The State Department was proactively telling me they didn’t trust me.”Overall, racial and ethnic minority staff are up to 29 percent less likely to be promoted within the State Department compared to white counterparts with similar qualifications, the Government Accountability Office study found. “This is a profound problem at the State Department, and across the entire national security establishment,” Sullivan said. “We have to build, rebuild trust in the organization,” the State Department official said.

WASHINGTON — A group of Canadian diplomats is accusing Canada's government of withholding information about what the diplomats say are three new cases of brain injury resulting from "Havana Syndrome" that have been identified in the past two years. The diplomats say the government justified that move by saying there had been no new brain injuries reported since 2018. Starting in 2016, U.S. and Canadian diplomats and other government workers stationed in Havana started falling ill, many after hearing strange sounds and experiencing bizarre physical sensations. The incidents caused hearing, balance and cognitive changes along with mild traumatic brain injury, also known as concussion. The diplomats say they're still waiting for Canada's government to finalize an agreement with Dalhousie University for children to be assessed for brain injury.

WASHINGTON — The United States and Israel disagree about reviving the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran but have an understanding to ensure there are "no surprises" between the two governments, White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan told NBC News. In an interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell, Sullivan indirectly addressed allegations that Israel was behind a recent cyberattack on an underground Iranian nuclear facility in Natanz. Sullivan acknowledged that the Biden administration and the Israeli government disagreed about the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran. "Israel has a point of view on the Iran nuclear deal. The United States is taking part indirectly, passing messages through European governments.

Nancy Pelosi defended the proposed tax hikes to fund Biden's $4 trillion infrastructure plans. She told MSNBC the hikes are a response to the GOP "tax scam" of 2017, which benefited the wealthy. She said Biden's tax hikes are in response to the Republicans' 2017 tax cuts. Pelosi also said that Biden's plan, which includes funding for universal pre-K and free community college, is "transformative" and works to directly aid Americans. Pelosi was referring to former President Donald Trump's 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which gave higher-income households larger average tax cuts than lower-income households.

The United States is set to hit Russia with fresh sanctions for alleged interference in the 2020 presidential election, a sweeping cyberattack against American government and corporate networks and other activities. Russia denies all of these charges, including calling the allegations over the 2020 election "baseless accusations." Russia did not want relations with Washington to be a case of "one step forward and two steps back," he added. U.S. officials also blame Russian intelligence services for the SolarWinds cyberattack last year, a widespread breach that tore into U.S. government agencies and dozens of corporations. The sanctions come at a time of particular tension after Russia started amassing forces along the border with Ukraine.

For years, the dangers of an al Qaeda attack led the threats assessment, and in more recent years the problem of cyber intrusions was featured first. Last year, there was no public threats assessment and no open congressional hearing, because intelligence officials worried about offending then-President Donald Trump by presenting judgments that conflicted with his worldview. "Beijing, Moscow, Tehran, and Pyongyang have demonstrated the capability and intent to advance their interests at the expense of the United States and its allies, despite the pandemic," the forward of the document says. "China increasingly is a near-peer competitor, challenging the United States in multiple arenas — especially economically, militarily, and technologically — and is pushing to change global norms. Discussions of cyber threats are sprinkled throughout the document, which notes that they "are demonstrably intertwined with threats to our infrastructure and to the foreign malign influence threats against our democracy."

The United Kingdom will install the world's largest network of underwater wildlife monitoring systems in 10 overseas territories in the next few months to measure the success of its ocean conservation efforts, the government said Friday. The project sets up marine parks and other special ocean zones where people aren't allowed to fish — an attempt to grow marine wildlife populations. The BRUVS system suspends multiple cameras set up on carbon fiber frames 10 meters underwater in deep ocean areas. The project is backed by the U.K. government, which hopes to learn which of its ocean conservation efforts are paying off or whether it needs to invest more in protecting marine wildlife. "Our marine experts are world-leaders in protecting our ocean and the myriad of species that live within it."

Satellite images show renewed activity at a North Korean nuclear facility, suggesting that Kim Jong Un's regime is preparing to start or has already started reprocessing plutonium for nuclear weapons, experts say. A plume of steam or smoke emanates from exhaust stack and full storage pens at the thermal plant in North Korea on Tuesday. The U.N. Security Council held a closed-door meeting about North Korea on Tuesday, but the discussions produced no immediate outcome. And it is deeply concerning where North Korea wants to go," Studeman said at a virtual event. If North Korea has started reprocessing, "then that could put us into a different level of tension with Korea going into 2021," he said.

WASHINGTON — North Korea fired at least one missile over the weekend, two U.S. officials told NBC News Tuesday. Officials declined to say what type of missile was fired or where it landed. Officials in Seoul typically issue statements after North Korean missile or nuclear tests, and the North Korean government has been known to brag about them, as well. Officials described the U.S. review of North Korean policy as being in its "final stages." Blinken said last week that Washington had reached out to North Korea through several channels starting in mid-February, but it hadn’t received any response.

The Biden administration Monday announced sanctions against two Chinese government officials over continued human rights abuses against the country's minority Uyghur population. The Department of the Treasury sanctions focus on Wang Junzheng, the secretary of the Party Committee of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, and Chen Mingguo, director of the Xinjiang Public Security Bureau. The sanctions were being imposed in coordination with similar moves by the European Union, the United Kingdom and Canada, the department said. The Treasury Department also announced sanctions against two individuals connected to the Myanmar military, which seized control of the country formerly known as Burma earlier this year. “And that's what we did today in partnership with our allies in issuing these sanctions for what China is doing to the Uyghurs in Xinjiang.”

WHO investigators, after visiting three labs in Wuhan, said last week they found no signs that a lab accident could have caused the outbreak. Both sources said the material, which they did not detail, did not add up to evidence that a lab accident occurred. But they said it raised enough circumstantial questions that analysts have been unable to rule out the lab scenario. The lab theory hypothesizes an accidental release of a virus found in nature by researchers and brought in for study. Several members of the WHO team told NBC News they were provided with just 13 DNA sequences from the 174 cases.
