The White House has since issued a clarification on how Joe Biden responded to the press when he was asked if he trusted Putin.

White House Communication Chief Kate Beddingfield has said, President Biden:

“was very clearly not responding to any one question” at that moment. She said there had been a “chaotic scrum with reporters shouting over each other”.

KDRTV noted that Biden:

“nodding in acknowledgment to the press generally”, Beddingfield said. She reminded reporters of Biden’s remarks on Monday in which he said his approach with Putin would be to “verify, then trust”.

The leaders are likely to also discuss swap f prisoners between the two countries.

The Swiss Anti-Nuclear Group Campax has urged the US and Russia to reduce their arsenals.

They spread a banner on the surface of Lake Geneva. the banner read: “Peace and Security Through Disarmament,” was displayed so that it could be seen from above just before Putin flew into Geneva airport for his summit with Joe Biden.

Arms control is a critical topic in the Geneva summit.
