US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin, after their most awaited summit on Wednesday, treated each other with politeness while they maintain varying stands regarding which nation holds the upper hand in terms of international disturbance.
The two leaders appeared in separate venues after their about three-hour discussions. Just like two athletes fighting for a sport title, the two has aired fine respect for each other, expressing their interest to improve ties. However, they offered no striking measures to address the deteriorating curve that already sped up the US-Russia conflict since the Cold War.
Biden and Putin, in news briefings, both vowed to establish working bodies to answer the immediate troubles, beginning with arms control and increase of cyberattacks.
The Russian leader said he and Biden agreed to deploy ambassadors again for each other’s countries, and voiced their will to cooperate in similar undertaking ranging from the Arctic to Afghanistan.
“There has been no hostility,’’said Putin.
“I did what I came to do,” Biden, meanwhile, said, which also counted in presenting several warnings for Putin. He cleared that those would not be considered “threats”.
Biden showed up giving a humble positive outlook that the US has replaced its Europe alliances. He has also geared the Russian leader to become more careful on any measures that will sit well on America.
“I think the last thing he wants now is a Cold War,” the US President told a news briefing. He described the Russian President as someone leading a worsening economy who sounds fear regarding the mounting philosophy of China.
He said he listed down 16 “critical infrastructure” for Putin to see and clarified that the US “have significant cyber capabilities” if Russia will launch attacks against them. The US, he said, will respond “in a cyber way.”
