China News Service, June 18, reported that US President Biden and Russian President Putin met in Geneva, Switzerland on the 16th.

The two sides reached a limited consensus on the launch of the bilateral strategic stability dialogue between Russia and the United States, but there are still clear differences on issues such as Ukraine and human rights.

After the meeting, Biden was even more displeased when he was asked by reporters about the outcome of the summit.

In this regard, the analysis believes that it is not realistic to significantly improve Russia-US relations through this meeting.

Asked about the outcome of the summit, Biden got angry in front of the camera

  Biden and Putin met in Geneva, Switzerland on the 16th. The meeting lasted 4.5 hours, including breaks.

  Putin praised the results of his meeting with Biden that day, saying that Biden is a shrewd negotiator.

He said that the atmosphere of the talks was very friendly, and the two sides "determined the key positions on which the two countries can approach each other."

  But at the same time, Putin rejected one by one the statements that "Russia is sending additional troops near the eastern border of Ukraine" and that "the United States accuses Russia of being responsible for the cyber attacks suffered by the United States."

  At the press conference held after the Biden summit, there was also an episode.

Biden was enraged when a female American journalist asked about the outcome of the talks, and even reprimanded the reporter for "wrongdoing." However, Biden publicly apologized to her a few hours later.

  According to reports, CNN's White House chief reporter Collins asked at the time, "Why are you so sure that Putin will change his behavior?"

  Biden immediately turned around, raised his index finger, approached the reporter's camera and said displeasedly, "I am not certain that he (Putin) will change his behavior." To the reporter, "Is this a constructive meeting?" When he asked, Biden said, "If you don't understand this, then you are in the wrong line", then turned and left.

  A few hours later, Biden apologized for his words and deeds, but at the same time complained that reporters "never ask" positive questions.

relationship unbridgeable

  The analysis believes that although Putin evaluated the two sides at the press conference as a "constructive dialogue", they did not show hostility to each other; Biden also said that the atmosphere of the meeting was "good and positive," but this episode also reflected Russia and the United States. The summit results are limited.

  The US media pointed out that due to obvious differences on issues involving Ukraine and human rights, it is unrealistic to expect a significant improvement in relations between the two countries through this meeting. It is a "small step" win-win situation in the deadlock.

  The New York Times believes that the two have shown professional diplomatic respect, but it is clear that they have hardly bridged their differences.

  In addition, Biden also revealed that some of the issues are left to a working group composed of senior Washington officials to report on progress in 6 to 12 months.

  Pomeranz, deputy director of the George Kennan Institute of Advanced Russia in Washington, analyzed that this is a "good start", but other results of the summit still need to be waited for.
