When talks began at the summit with European Union leaders on Tuesday, President Joe Biden warned against the "false populism" that is spreading across the American and European continents.

"We are in the midst of terrible beauty to be born," he said, quoting Yeats.

«A big change in technology.

A great change in development in the world.

It is causing great anxiety in our countries.

Biden was seated around a large circular table with European officials and members of the American cabinet, including the secretaries of state and commerce.

The summit was expected to produce breakthroughs in trade, including a resolution of the 17-year-old Airbus / Boeing dispute, and the formation of a new trade and technology council.

Economic and technological changes were causing political instability that has led to unfortunate results, he said.

"It spawns some people, who are more like charlatans, trying to take advantage of those concerns," he added.

“We see that in Europe and in the United States, we see that all over the world - false populism.

It seems to me that the best answer to deal with these changes is to have a circumstance in which our economies grow and grow together.

Biden said he wanted to address those issues during his talks with European leaders, which he is holding a day before traveling to Geneva to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"Europe is our natural partner, and the reason is that we are committed to the same democratic norms, and they are increasingly under attack," he said.

"Completely inappropriate" to discuss prisoner swap ahead of Biden-Putin summit, Kremlin says

By From Anna Chernova and Zahra Ullah of CNN in Geneva

"It is completely inappropriate now to discuss" who might be involved in a possible prisoner exchange between the United States and Russia, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told CNN during a conference call with journalists on Tuesday.

Peskov added that Russian President Vladimir Putin has already said publicly that he would be open to a prisoner swap, but details need to be discussed between the two presidents.

The issue of prisoner swaps is high on the agenda ahead of Wednesday's Biden-Putin summit in Geneva, Switzerland, and both US and Russian officials say they want their citizens to return.

Peskov's comments follow statements by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, who claimed that Moscow is ready to hand over convicted US citizens in Russia, but Paul Whelan will not be among them.

The Biden-Putin summit will likely last between four and five hours, the spokesman said, adding that the Russian president will hold a press conference "as soon as" the talks are over.

“I don't know if there will be a press conference for Mr. Biden.

But I can officially confirm that a press conference of Vladimir Putin will be held after the meeting «.

US and EU settle 17-year dispute over Boeing and Airbus subsidies

By Kevin Liptak

The United States and the European Union resolved a 17-year disagreement over how much each subsidizes its biggest aircraft maker, as US President Joe Biden met with EU leaders in Brussels on Tuesday.

The resolution underscores Biden's enthusiasm for restoring transatlantic ties during his European tour and for normalizing traditional American alliances after four years of tension.

The dispute over government support, for Boeing in the US and Airbus in the EU, centered on former President Donald Trump, who imposed $ 7.5 billion in tariffs on European products.

That led to reciprocal tariffs applied by the EU to the United States.

As part of the resolution, the two sides agreed to suspend the tariffs for five years that each had imposed on the other as part of the trade battle.

In addition, each of them will publish statements detailing "acceptable support" for aircraft manufacturers.

US Trade Representative Katherine Tai said the deal, reached after months of intense talks, “solves a long-standing trade problem in the relationship between the United States and Europe.

Instead of fighting with one of our closest allies, we finally unite against a common threat.

Tai said the United States had reserved the right to re-apply the tariffs if Europe fails to honor its end of the deal.

The trade representative also mentioned China as a motivating factor to join in trade at this time.

"A renewed trade and investment partnership with the European Union is a top priority for the administration and our early efforts have been successful," said Tai.
