Biden, Putin termed summit positive but still at odds over several issues

The American President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin have termed the recent summit held between the two leaders as a “positive” and “constructive” one.
However, the media talks of both the leaders made it clear that despite such a positive summit the divisions over human rights, cyberattacks and Ukraine still persisted between both countries.
Putin while addressing the media said that the two nations had agreed that their ambassadors, who both returned to their home countries amid the tensions, should return to their posts in the near future. He said they would also begin “consultations” on cyber-related issues.
He said that they believe the sphere of cybersecurity is extremely important for the world in general, including for the United States, and for Russia to the same degree.
Putin denied that Russia has played a role in a spate of increasingly bold cyberattacks against U.S. institutions and said it was the United States that is the biggest offender.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden said that he had pressed the Russian president on a variety of issues and that he would not stop doing so. He said that he made it clear to President Putin that the US will continue to raise issues of fundamental human rights.
US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in Geneva yesterday. The meeting lasted more than three hours and discussed other issues related to human rights in Ukraine and Cybercrime.
