Biden set to meet Putin in Geneva today

The American and Russian presidents will meet today in Geneva for a summit at a moment of deeply strained relations between the two countries.


Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin’s encounter at a villa on the shores of Lake Geneva is full of the potential for high drama but low on expectations for diplomatic breakthroughs.

The meeting, which is expected to last the whole afternoon, comes at the end of Joe Biden’s first foreign trip as US president which has taken him to Cornwall for the G7 meeting and Brussels for separate NATO and EU summits.


At all of these meetings, messages have been moulded and red lines set by western leaders which sources say Mr Biden will spell out to Mr Putin.


Ukraine, Belarus, Iran, Syria and issues like arms proliferation are all expected to be discussed as well as behaviour by Russia which western nations consider to be contrary to the so-called international rules based system.
