During a press conference following his meeting with President of Russia Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Biden said he doesn’t think his Russian counterpart wants a new Cold War.
“I pointed out that we have tremendous potential in cyberspace, and he knows that. If Russia breaches the main norms, the US will respond. I think a Cold War is the last thing he wants now,” Biden said.
According to Biden, Putin understands everything, but added that this doesn’t mean Putin is ready to lay down his guard and say ‘fine’. Biden also said he thinks Putin is still concerned that the US wants to lead him to failure and noted that the coming months will be a test to see whether today’s discussion can help bring the countries closer to progress.
