(CNN) – The summit between US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin ended on Wednesday after a four-hour meeting in Geneva, Switzerland.
The summit is a large bilateral meeting between the teams of Russia and the United States, the first part of which is more than 90 minutes, and the second session is one hour in addition to the 45-hour interval.
President Biden told a news conference that his “agenda was not against Russia or anyone else, it was for the benefit of the American people.”
“When we have differences, I want President Putin to understand why I say, why I do, and how we respond to different actions that harm the interests of the United States. I told President Putin that my agenda is not against Russia or anyone. For good, ”Biden said.
The U.S. president said his agenda includes fighting the COVID-19, rebuilding the U.S. economy, re-establishing ties with allies around the world, and protecting Americans.
President Vladimir Putin, for his part, said the Ukraine issue was a matter for discussion with President Biden.
As for Ukraine’s entry into NATO, he said, “I do not think there is anything to discuss.”
Meanwhile, President Biden and his team met closely to monitor Putin’s press conference, how he designed the meeting, and if there was anything specific that Biden should oppose while holding his own press conference, a La Gaza official said. .
This is one of the reasons why Team Biden wanted to be second in the press conference.
Progress of the Summit: Internet Security and Diplomacy
Putin said that after the summit, the United States and Russia would begin consultations on cyber security, because “both parties must accept certain obligations there.”
“We believe cyberspace is extraordinarily important, in general, to the United States and Russia in particular,” Putin told CNN’s Matthew Sans.
Although Putin acknowledged that the United States was the victim of a large number of cyber attacks, he assured that Russia would also be a victim.
“We see this every year. For example, one of the healthiest systems in Russia has been attacked. So this means that the work is being coordinated,” Putin said.
“In the United States, I do not think the government is particularly interested in regulating or investigating it. All they do is innovate. All we need is expert advice from each other. In principle, we acknowledge that Russia is ready for that,” Putin added.
Meanwhile, Putin said the US and Russian ambassadors would return to their diplomatic positions and accept their duties.
