There is a saying about relations in international politics that 'no one is a permanent friend, nor a permanent enemy'. American President Joe Biden has given this saying. During the US presidential election, Biden warned Russian President Putin about interference in the election. Not only this, in the month of March, he even called Putin a murderer. Before meeting Putin in Geneva, when Biden was asked about the killer, he gave this answer very cleverly.
What did Biden say earlier?
Biden recently said in an interview that Putin will have to pay the price for his alleged interference in the US presidential election. In this interview, he called Putin a killer. His statement came at a time when a US intelligence report was quoted as saying that Putin has tried to tamper the election through an interference campaign in the presidential election held in the US last November. The report accused Russia of trying to twist the election results in favor of former President Donald Trump.
What Biden said later -
At a press conference in Belgium on Monday, when Biden was asked whether he still considered Putin a killer, he laughed off the question. Biden said that these things do not matter much before our next meeting. He said that I have faced many such attacks during my tenure. Biden said that now we are not surprised by such attacks. The people we work with, with whom we have differences, they do not have a relationship between their wives and wives. In many cases we are allies and in many cases we are adversaries. He said that as far as the use of such terminology is concerned, I think it is part of American culture.
The meeting of the two leaders amidst bitter relations
Today i.e. on June 16, Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Biden are meeting in Geneva. This will be Biden and Putin's first meeting. This meeting is taking place at a time when relations between the two countries are at their worst. This can be gauged from the fact that Russia has recently put America in the list of countries whose relations are not friendly. Not only this, there is no ambassador in both the countries.
