Biden, Putin to Restore Diplomatic Ties After Brief Summit in Geneva

HeadlineJun 17, 2021

President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in Geneva Wednesday for a three-hour summit. The two leaders of the world’s largest nuclear powers agreed to set up working groups to deal with nuclear arms control, as well as cyberattacks. They also agreed to send ambassadors back to their posts. Biden said after the brief summit that both parties had agreed not to renew the tensions of the Cold War.

President Joe Biden: “It’s clearly not in anybody’s interest, your country’s or mine, for us to be in a situation where we’re in a new Cold War. And I truly believe he thinks that.”
