ISTANBUL -- As news broke of a blast this month in Poland suspected of being a Russian missile, U.S. President Joe Biden convened an emergency meeting at his hotel in Bali.

He was on the Indonesian island for the Group of 20 summit and called on fellow leaders there -- those who belonged to NATO and the G-7 -- to come and discuss responses to the Poland blast.
