Washington: US President Joe Biden will meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in the Swiss capital, Geneva, on June 16.
China's attention is also focused on this meeting. The special thing is that the meeting of the two leaders is taking place at a time when there is a conflict and differences between the US and China regarding the origin of the coronavirus pandemic.
Not only this, in the G-7 meeting, all European countries including America have prepared a roadmap to crack down on China. On the other hand, there is also tension in the relations between Russia and the US.
In such a situation, it is expected that this meeting of the heads of the two rival countries can lead to a softening of the strained relations between America and Russia. Biden's meeting with Putin also means a lot in this context.
Signs of the restoration of better relations between US and Russia
Recently, while giving information, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the top leaders of the two countries will discuss a wide range of issues as we seek the restoration and stability of a better US-Russian relationship in the future.
This dialogue will be about ending the ongoing tension between the two countries and positive initiatives in the relations. US President Biden had sent an invitation to Russian President Vladimir Putin, taking the initiative to improve relations between the two countries.
The White House press secretary said that the steps taken so far by Russia harm America's sovereignty.
"We will defend our national interest. Earlier in the past, President Biden spoke to Putin on the phone. He expressed concern about the sudden Russian military activities in Ukraine and Crimea," he said.
Joe Biden's agenda
On the other hand, the diplomatic implications of the US President's meeting with Putin are also being extracted. The US strategy is to put pressure on China to end the origin of the coronavirus pandemic in China, the growing dominance of the dragon in the Indian Pacific region and the South China Sea.
Apart from this, Joe Biden wants to isolate China in the world regarding Hong Kong and Uighur Muslims. In such a situation, this meeting of Joe Biden and Putin is being seen in a special dimension. Now it will be interesting to see how he can disrupt the friendship between China and Russia.
The first target of the US will be to change Russia's position on the issue of China. If he fails in this, his goal will be to improve relations between America and Russia. If Russia and America come closer, there will be direct or indirect pressure on China. This meeting of Biden is being viewed with a special perspective.
Especially for the origin of the coronavirus pandemic, the US completely blames China. In such a situation, it will be the US agenda to persuade Russia for this.
Apart from this, many other reasons are being considered for the meeting between the two countries. In this, there are issues like sanctions imposed by the US on 32 Russian entities and Russia's involvement in the 2020 elections and the supply chain software hacking of the US network. However, Russia has denied these allegations.
