US President Joe Biden met face to face with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a summit in Geneva, Switzerland, on Wednesday.
The two had met before, but this was their first encounter since Biden was elected President. They were expected to discuss a wide range of issues as Biden wrapped up his first international trip.
US and Russian leaders have met many times over the past century — sometimes as allies, sometimes as adversaries — and the affairs are always highly anticipated.
