Kremlin praise after Biden-Putin meeting in Geneva: "As much as that may sound like pathos"
The Kremlin spokesman also announced that the Russian ambassador would return to Washington in the coming days. At their meeting in Geneva on Wednesday, Putin and Biden agreed on the return of their ambassadors to Moscow and Washington. The diplomats returned to their homeland in the spring as tensions between the two countries grew. The step now agreed is a sign of de-escalation.
Peskow also praised the declaration of both presidents on new strategic talks on arms control as a text in which "the special responsibility of our two states not only towards our peoples, but - as much as that may sound like pathos - towards the whole world" realize.
