Biden, Putin face off in tense Geneva summit

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Biden, Putin face off in tense Geneva summit” – below is their description.

President Joe #Biden and President Vladimir #Putin face off Wednesday at a tense #Geneva summit, where ghosts of the Cold War will hover over modern-day US concerns about #Russian #cyberattacks and what the White House sees as a dangerous authoritarian drift. The setting — a sumptuous villa overlooking Lake Geneva — may be picturesque, but a gruelling diplomatic face-off awaits. Up to five hours of talks are planned, starting at around 1:00 p.m. (1100 GMT), with no break for meals. Putin is due to arrive first, then Biden, with Swiss President Guy Parmelin acting as host. FRANCE 24’s Gulliver Cragg says.
