U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed at their first summit on Wednesday to resume arms control talks and to return ambassadors to each other's capitals after they were withdrawn earlier this year.
Axar.az reports that the summit at the lakeside Villa La Grange in Geneva lasted less than four hours - for less than Biden's advisers had said they expected.
The scheduling of separate news conferences meant there was none of the joviality that accompanied a 2018 meeting between Putin and Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump. There was also no joint meal.
Putin, 68, who was first to brief reporters, said the meeting had been constructive, without hostility, and had shown the leaders' desire to understand each other.
