Amazon Quiz (August 8, 2021): Where did the 2021 summit between U.S. President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin take place?

a. Vienna

b. Glasgow

c. Hague

d. Geneva

Answer: Geneva

  US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin shook hands in Geneva on Wednesday at the start of their first summit, with tensions at their highest in years, news agency AFP reported. The summit has now concluded, said the White House, nearly four hours after it began.

The choice of Geneva, following long US-Russian negotiations, recalls the Cold War summit between US president Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in the Swiss city in 1985.  

From cyberattacks on American entities and meddling in the last two US presidential elections, to human rights violations and aggression against Ukraine and other European countries, Washington’s list of allegations against the Kremlin runs long and these are on the agenda, AFP reported.
