The much-awaited meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Biden lasted about three-and-a-half hours. The summit proved to be the very first time that Biden met Putin as the American commander-in-chief.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that US President Joe Biden told reporters following his highly-anticipated meeting with Putin on Wednesday that his administration's agenda is geared toward the American public, and not specifically against Russia or other nations.
"I told President Putin my agenda is not against Russia or anyone else. It's for the American people," Biden remarked, adding that his focus is on fighting COVID-19, rebuilding the US economy and strengthening ties with allies.
"I also told him that no president of the United States could keep faith with the American people if they did not speak out to defend our democratic values, to stand up for the universal and fundamental freedoms of all men and women ... that's just the DNA of our country."
