Putin seeks to mend relations with US in summit with Biden


SAINT PETERSBURG: Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that he will hope to mend Russia’s damaged relations with the US when he will hold his first summit with President Joe Biden.

The face-to-face meeting in Geneva on June 16 comes amid the biggest crisis in ties between the two countries in years, with tensions high over a litany of issues including hacking allegations, human rights and claims of election meddling.

“We need to find ways to regularise these relations,” Putin told the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum, adding that bilateral ties are currently at a “low level”.
