Putin and Biden met for almost two hours this Wednesday in Geneva.

It was a meeting that generated great expectation and ended without the anticipated animosity, although with marked differences.

Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia and Joe Biden of the United States described how “constructive” and “positive”, the first face-to-face meeting they held this Wednesday in Geneva.

However, and despite the favorable balance that both gave in separate press conferences, concrete progress was scarce.

Disagreements were expressed on both sides, President Biden said, but “not in a hyperbolic atmosphere,” adding that the thing Putin wants the least is “a new Cold War”.
