US President Joe Biden called the tone of his meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin today in Geneva "positive."
"I must tell you, the tone of the entire meeting, I guess it was a total of four hours, it was good. Positive," he said in remarks at the start of a press conference following Putin's.
"There wasn't any strident action taken, where we disagreed, I disagreed, I stated what it was. Where he disagreed, he stated, but it was not done in a hyperbolic atmosphere. There's been too much of that going on," Biden said.
“Over this last week, I believe, I hope, the United States has shown the world that we are back standing with our allies, we rallied our fellow democracies to make concerted commitments to take on the biggest challenges our world faces, and now we’ve established a clear basis on how we intend to deal with Russia and the US-Russian relationship,” Biden continued.
"We have gotten a lot of business done on this trip," he added.
