MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 21st July, 2021) The summit of Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden in Geneva opened the door for restoring a constructive dialogue, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
"The meeting of the Russian and the US presidents, held on June 16 in Geneva, creates certain opportunities for restoring a constructive dialogue in certain areas where we share interests, including strategic stability, cybersecurity, climate agenda, the Arctic region and contribution to resolving regional conflicts," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
