  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “US, Russia to ‘reinstate ambassadors’ after Biden-Putin talks” – below is their description.

    US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin have concluded their Geneva summit, bringing to an end the first meeting between them since Biden took office in January.

    The talks on Wednesday in Geneva, Switzerland, lasted about four hours, according to the White House.

    Addressing reporters following the meeting, Putin said he and Biden had agreed the US and Russia would return their respective ambassadors to their posts in a bid to lower tensions between the countries.

    Russia’s ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, was recalled from Washington about three months ago after Biden described Putin as a killer.

    US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan left Moscow almost two months ago after Russia suggested he return to Washington for consultations.

    Prior to the summit, expectations for any substantial breakthroughs had been low, with Moscow and Washington both openly cool on the prospects of major progress.
