President Vladimir Putin on Thursday said Russia was ready to have more of Geneva-kind-of summit if the United States is willing.
Russia’s Putin and US Joe Biden officially met in Geneva on Wednesday for the first time since the latter became President following soaring tensions between Moscow and Washington, their lowest since the end of the Cold War.
“We are ready to continue this dialogue to the same extent as the American side is,” Putin said in televised remarks.
Although the summit, was welcomed by world powers but it failed to resolve their real issues ranging from human rights, cyber-security, Ukraine to the fate of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
When asked to describe Biden, Putin said the US president’s portrayal in the press has “nothing to do with reality”
“Biden is a professional, you have to be very attentive when working with him so as not to miss something,” Putin said.
“So what that he sometimes confuses things. His press secretary is a young, educated, beautiful woman — she herself constantly confuses things,” Putin said, referring to White House press secretary Jen Psaki.
“It is not because she is poorly educated or has a bad memory, just when people think that some things are secondary they don’t focus too much attention on them,” he said.
Putin added that “Americans think that nothing is more important than themselves”.
