Washington. In the midst of the Corona virus crisis, US President Joe Biden is going to have a very important meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the city of Geneva, Switzerland. This is his first foreign tour since Biden became president. The eyes of Biden, who strongly attacked Putin during the US election campaign, are all over the world. Meanwhile, former US President Donald Trump has congratulated Biden and also warned not to fall asleep during the talks.
Donald Trump said in an email message, ‘Joe Biden, many congratulations on meeting with President Putin. Don’t fall asleep during the meeting and yes please convey my warm wishes to him.’ Donald Trump has been calling Biden ‘Slippy Joe’ during his election campaign last year. He claimed several times that Biden’s mental health was deteriorating.
Russia will not distance itself from China to improve relations with America. A top Russian diplomat said this on Thursday ahead of the crucial summit between Biden and Putin. Biden will hold a meeting with Putin in Geneva on June 16 in which many issues are likely to be discussed. The two leaders will meet face to face for the first time amid US-Russia tensions.
