The two leaders shook hands while appearing briefly before cameras with Swiss President Guy Parmelin, who welcomed them to Switzerland, and then entered the mansion for what is expected to be four or five hours of talks.
During a bilateral meeting, Putin said he hoped a meeting with Biden would be productive. Biden said the two leaders would try to determine areas of cooperation and mutual interest.
