President Putin arrives at the summit site


The Russian caravan took President Vladimir Putin and his delegation to Villa La Grange.

He was greeted by the President of Switzerland, Guy Parmelin, on the steps of the mansion, where they posed briefly for photographers before entering, prior to the arrival of President Biden.

CNN's chief international correspondent Clarissa Ward described Putin as "laid-back" and "jovial."

Russia's expectations for the summit

Russian President Vladimir Putin landed in Geneva and headed to Villa La Grange on the shores of Lake Geneva, a historic 18th-century mansion where his summit with Biden will take place.

Russian expectations for this crucial summit are low, echoing the framing the White House has been using in recent days.

The fact that the meeting takes place is considered an achievement.

That said, there are common areas: climate change, arms reduction, various regional conflicts are topics that you could discuss.

And we even got to see some signed joint statements on some of those issues, according to the Kremlin.

But with major disagreements central to this strained relationship between the United States and Russia, no one seriously expects any solid progress during a single summit.

There are some areas where we are unlikely to see any movement, including cyberattacks against the US emanating from Russia, the military threat that Russia continues to pose to its neighbors, particularly Ukraine, and the issue of Navalny and other activists from the opposition who have been attacked within Russia.

Ultimately, on these important issues, we expect Putin to take a hard line.

This is what happened at the US-EU summit on Tuesday

By Kevin Liptak

US President Joe Biden reached a summit with European Union leaders that officials said would focus primarily on trade issues.

Biden has yet to reverse the Trump-era tariffs on steel and aluminum, but he helped resolve a dispute that had raged for nearly two decades over subsidies for Boeing and Airbus.

The two sides were expected to announce a resolution to the aircraft dispute and signal progress on the metals tariffs without formally announcing their suspension yet.

Biden is eager to reestablish transatlantic ties on his European tour this week, hoping to enter the high-stakes summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin tomorrow by appearing united with Western allies.

That has come mainly in statements of support, but the resolution of the trade dispute is a concrete sign of his intention to normalize America's traditional alliances after four years of tension.

America is back.

We are committed, we have never quite left, but we reaffirm the fact that it overwhelmingly benefits the United States to have a great relationship with NATO and the EU, "Biden said at the beginning of the talks.

"I have a very different vision than my predecessor."

His message was received by his hosts, the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.

"The last four years have not been easy," von der Leyen said.

Officials want to ease trade tensions ahead of Biden's meeting with Putin to form a united front against Moscow.

The brother of American detained in Russia has "hopes" in aid of Biden

By CNN's Adrienne Vogt

Paul Whelan sits in a holding cell while awaiting a courtroom hearing in Moscow, Russia, on August 23, 2019.

David Whelan, brother of Paul Whelan, an American imprisoned in Russia since 2018, said he is "hopeful" that the Joe Biden administration can help free his brother.

"I would say thank you," Whelan said he would tell Biden before Wednesday's meeting between the US president and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

“For extending the offer to have this summit.

For being pragmatic in the relationship with the Russian Federation and letting him know that we support him and the decisions he may have to make.

And we are hopeful that your administration will find a way to bring our brother, son, home to our family, "he added.

Paul Whelan, a former US Marine, was found guilty by a Moscow spy court on June 15, 2020 and sentenced to 16 years in prison.

He was detained in a Moscow hotel in December 2018 by Russian authorities who alleged that he was involved in an intelligence operation.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Moscow is ready to hand over convicted US citizens in Russia, but Paul Whelan will not be among them.

David Whelan told CNN's Ana Cabrera that he believes his brother is being used as a bargaining chip.

Whelan also said he understands that Biden is in a "difficult situation."

"The president is responsible for all American citizens wherever they are, so it is a very difficult situation for him to have to decide," he said.

Biden arrives in Geneva: the details of the summit with Putin

By Kevin Liptak


President Joe Biden arrived in Geneva on Tuesday as US officials laid out the structure for his long-awaited talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Air Force One landed in Geneva around 10:20 am ET // 4:20 pm local.

Los funcionarios a bordo del avión dijeron que Biden se reuniría con Putin a la 1 p.m. hora local (7 a.m. ET) del miércoles en la villa junto al lago donde se está produciendo la cumbre. Putin llegará primero a la villa.

Ambos serán recibidos por el presidente de Suiza antes de que los tres posen para una foto.

Su primera reunión contará con cuatro participantes: Biden, Putin, el secretario de Estado de Estados Unidos, Antony Blinken, y el ministro de Relaciones Exteriores de Rusia, Sergey Lavrov. Cada lado tendrá un traductor y habrá una sesión de fotos.

La reunión luego se ampliará con delegaciones de cinco miembros de cada lado, además de Biden y Putin. Aún no estaba claro quién participaría por Estados Unidos.

Los funcionarios estadounidenses dijeron que esperaban que las conversaciones duraran de cuatro a cinco horas, o quizás más. No se espera que los líderes compartan una comida.

“No se permite partir el pan”, dijo un alto funcionario de la administración.

Los dos líderes concluirán convocando conferencias de prensa separadas.

Los funcionarios subrayaron las modestas expectativas para las conversaciones y mencionaron la estabilidad nuclear y otros acuerdos de control de armas como una fuente potencial de acuerdo. Dijeron que era posible que las áreas de cooperación potencial se asignen a los asistentes para un trabajo adicional.

Se espera que el ransomware sea un factor importante en las conversaciones, y el funcionario dijo que Biden subrayaría los planes de Estados Unidos para responder a los continuos ataques dirigidos por el estado.

Biden planteará los derechos humanos, dijo el funcionario, pero no especificó si eso incluirá una discusión sobre el líder de la oposición Alexey Navalny.

Tanto los embajadores de Estados Unidos como de Rusia en las respectivas capitales estarán en Ginebra para las conversaciones.

El funcionario dijo que Biden ha estado revisando los temas en material escrito y comprometiéndose con una amplia variedad de asesores en el período previo a la cumbre.

Biden se reunió con expertos rusos para prepararse para la cumbre de Putin

Por De Natasha Bertrand de CNN

El presidente Biden se reunió con un grupo de expertos rusos a principios de este mes para conocer su opinión sobre cómo tratar con Putin antes de la cumbre, dijo a CNN una persona familiarizada con la reunión.

Entre los asistentes se encontraban Angela Stent, ex oficial de inteligencia nacional para Rusia y Eurasia en el Consejo Nacional de Inteligencia; el ex embajador de Estados Unidos en Rusia Michael McFaul; el ex director senior del Consejo de Seguridad Nacional para Rusia Fiona Hill; el ex embajador en Rusia John Teft; el controvertido experto en Rusia Matthew Rojansky y la ex subsecretaria general de la OTAN Rose Gottenmiller.

Axios fue el primero en informar sobre la reunión y la asistencia de McFaul, Hill, Teft y Gottenmiller.

El consenso de este grupo fue que Biden no debería celebrar una conferencia de prensa conjunta con Putin al final de sus conversaciones, según fuentes familiarizadas con la discusión.

Esta no fue la primera vez que Biden ha convocado a expertos de Rusia para informarle antes de una reunión centrada en Rusia, según un exfuncionario. Hizo lo mismo como vicepresidente.

Biden advierte contra el "populismo falso" en la cumbre de la UE

Cuando comenzaron las conversaciones en la cumbre con los líderes de la Unión Europea el martes, el presidente Joe Biden advirtió contra el «populismo falso» que se está extendiendo por los continentes americano y europeo.

«Estamos en medio de una terrible belleza por haber nacido», dijo, citando a Yeats. «Un gran cambio en la tecnología. Un gran cambio en el desarrollo en el mundo. Está causando una gran ansiedad en nuestros países».

Biden estaba sentado alrededor de una gran mesa circular con funcionarios europeos y miembros del gabinete estadounidense, incluidos los secretarios de Estado y Comercio.

Se esperaba que la cumbre produjera avances en el comercio, incluida una resolución de la disputa Airbus / Boeing de 17 años , y la formación de un nuevo consejo de comercio y tecnología.

Los cambios económicos y tecnológicos estaban causando inestabilidad política que ha llevado a resultados desafortunados, dijo.

«Genera algunas personas, que son algo más como charlatanes, tratando de aprovechar esas preocupaciones», agregó. «Vemos eso en Europa y en Estados Unidos, vemos eso en todo el mundo – el falso populismo. Me parece que la mejor respuesta para lidiar con estos cambios es tener una circunstancia en la que nuestras economías crezcan y crezcan juntas».

Biden dijo que quería abordar esos problemas durante sus conversaciones con los líderes europeos, que está llevando a cabo un día antes de viajar a Ginebra para reunirse con el presidente ruso Vladimir Putin.

«Europa es nuestro socio natural, y la razón es que estamos comprometidos con las mismas normas democráticas, y están cada vez más bajo ataque», dijo.

"Completamente inapropiado" discutir el intercambio de prisioneros antes de la cumbre Biden-Putin, dice el Kremlin

Por De Anna Chernova y Zahra Ullah de CNN en Ginebra

«Es completamente inapropiado ahora discutir» quién podría estar involucrado en un posible intercambio de prisioneros entre Estados Unidos y Rusia, dijo a CNN el portavoz del Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, durante una conferencia telefónica con periodistas el martes.

Peskov agregó que el presidente ruso Vladimir Putin ya ha dicho públicamente que estaría abierto a un intercambio de prisioneros, pero los detalles deben ser discutidos entre los dos presidentes.

El tema de los canjes de prisioneros ocupa un lugar destacado en la agenda antes de la cumbre Biden-Putin del miércoles en Ginebra, Suiza, y tanto funcionarios estadounidenses como rusos dicen que quieren que sus ciudadanos regresen.

Los comentarios de Peskov siguen a las declaraciones del viceministro de Relaciones Exteriores de Rusia, Sergei Ryabkov, quien afirmó que Moscú está listo para entregar a ciudadanos estadounidenses condenados en Rusia, pero Paul Whelan no estará entre ellos.

La cumbre Biden-Putin probablemente durará entre cuatro y cinco horas, dijo el portavoz, y agregó que el presidente ruso celebrará una conferencia de prensa «tan pronto como» terminen las conversaciones.

“No sé si habrá una conferencia de prensa para el señor Biden. Pero puedo confirmar oficialmente que se llevará a cabo una conferencia de prensa de Vladimir Putin después de la reunión «.

EE. UU. y la UE resuelven una disputa de 17 años sobre los subsidios de Boeing y Airbus

Por Kevin Liptak

Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea resolvieron un desacuerdo de 17 años sobre cuánto subsidia cada uno a su mayor fabricante de aviones, ya que el presidente de Estados Unidos, Joe Biden, se reunió con los líderes de la UE en Bruselas el martes.

La resolución subraya el entusiasmo de Biden por restablecer los lazos transatlánticos durante su gira europea y por normalizar las alianzas tradicionales estadounidenses después de cuatro años de tensión.

La disputa sobre el apoyo del gobierno, para Boeing en los EE. UU. Y Airbus en la UE, se centró en el ex presidente Donald Trump, quien impuso aranceles por valor de 7.500 millones de dólares a productos europeos. Eso llevó a aranceles recíprocos aplicados por la UE a Estados Unidos.

Como parte de la resolución, las dos partes acordaron suspender los aranceles durante cinco años que cada una había impuesto a la otra como parte de la batalla comercial. Además, cada uno de ellos publicará declaraciones que detallen el “apoyo aceptable” para los fabricantes de aviones.

La representante comercial de Estados Unidos, Katherine Tai, dijo que el acuerdo, alcanzado después de meses de intensas conversaciones, “resuelve un problema comercial de larga data en la relación entre Estados Unidos y Europa. En lugar de luchar con uno de nuestros aliados más cercanos, finalmente nos unimos contra una amenaza común «.

Tai dijo que Estados Unidos se había reservado el derecho de volver a aplicar los aranceles si Europa no cumple su parte del acuerdo. El representante comercial también mencionó a China como un factor motivador para unirse en el comercio en este momento.

«Una asociación renovada de comercio e inversión con la Unión Europea es una prioridad máxima para la administración y nuestros primeros esfuerzos han tenido éxito», dijo Tai.

«Estados Unidos ha vuelto. Estamos comprometidos, nunca nos hemos ido del todo, pero reafirmamos el hecho de que, de manera abrumadora, beneficia a Estados Unidos tener una gran relación con la OTAN y la UE», dijo Biden. «Tengo una visión muy diferente a la de mi predecesor», agregó.

El mensaje de Biden fue recibido por sus anfitriones, el presidente del Consejo Europeo, Charles Michel, y la presidenta de la Comisión Europea, Ursula von der Leyen.

«Estás de vuelta en Bruselas y Estados Unidos está de vuelta en la escena mundial», dijo Michel. «Es una gran noticia».

«Los últimos cuatro años no han sido fáciles», dijo Von der Leyen. «El mundo ha cambiado drásticamente, Europa ha cambiado, queremos tranquilizarlos a ustedes, a sus amigos y aliados».
