(CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden will meet with former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev Friday at the White House.
In a visit last week to London's Evening Standard, Gorbachev praised President Barack Obama, but issued strong criticism of the United States' foreign policy.
"One day it [the U.S.] will have to stop giving orders and stop trying to tell the whole world how it should act," said President Gorbachev. "And its military must try to act within this new order, so that when all the countries of the United Nation propose solutions together, their decisions will be brought to life."
The meeting between the vice president and former Soviet leader comes as Russia approaches of the 20th anniversary the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Gorbachev spoke at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington Thursday, participating in a discussion about the legal development of the Russian constitution.
