US President Joe Biden will discuss human rights abuses with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the meeting in Switzerland next month. This was reported by CNN with reference to Biden's speech on Memorial Day.
"I'll be meeting with President Putin in a couple of weeks in Geneva, making it clear that we will not - we will not stand by and let him abuse those rights," Biden said.
Joe Biden added that the United States is obliged to speak up when it sees human rights violations, but did not provide any other details for the upcoming summit. It is noted that despite the deterioration of relations between the two countries on issues such as Ukraine and interference in the elections, Biden hopes to establish a clear channel of communication - it will avoid undue surprises.
