Geneva: A very special meeting is going to take place in Geneva on Wednesday between the two superpowers of the world. These two superpowers are he US and Russia.
This meeting between US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin, which has been anticipated for a long time, is special in many ways. Let us tell you that the last meeting between these two was in Moscow on March 10, 2011.
Although Joe Biden was the US Vice President at the time and Putin was the Prime Minister of Russia. Ahead of Wedneday's meeting, the positions of both of them have changed.
While US President Joe Biden has taken over as President from January 20, 2021, Vladimir Putin has been the President of Russia since August 1999. He is regarded as one of the most powerful leaders in the world.
Amidst the meeting between Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden to be held today, there is speculation about what will be the agenda of talks between the two. Let us tell you that the sourness that has arisen between the US and Russia over the last few years has not one but many big reasons..
Apart from this, the Russian President has also been held responsible for cyber attacks on US agencies and private companies. The US may also raise the issue of President Putin trying to kill his rival leaders by poisoning them.
Many countries, including the US, are against Russia for what happened to Alexei Navalny, a staunch opponent of Putin. In addition, Putin was accused of conspiring to kill a former Russian agent in Britain and his daughter with a nerve agent.
Weapon systems are a major issue between the two countries. In recent times, the Russian air defence defense system S 400 has become a big reason for this. America does not want any country to buy this system of Russia.
Pressure is also being put on Russia and other countries regarding this. This pressure has also been put on Turkey and India. However, both the countries have categorically refused to back down. Apart from this, the support of Putin's government in Syria and aggressive attacks there as well as helping the Syrian army has always been disliked by the US. Similar is the case in Ukraine and Libya.
Since Biden became president, diplomatic relations between the two countries have also seen a considerable decline. While Putin can talk about the release of his citizens in US prisons, Biden can make similar demands for US citizens in Russian prisons.
