Biden Calls for Emergency Meeting With Vladimir Putin

Biden Calls for Emergency Meeting With Vladimir Putin

(WatchDogReport.org) – Former President Donald Trump forged a relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin while he was in office because he understood the importance of diplomacy, even with our adversaries. When President Joe Biden took over, he seemed to do away with all of that and almost immediately began harshly criticizing Putin. That might make his current plan a bit difficult.

On Tuesday, April 13, Biden spoke with Putin amid rising tensions between Russia and Ukraine. The US president proposed a meeting in a neutral third party country in the upcoming weeks to discuss the issue. During the phone call, he reaffirmed America’s “unwavering commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

Under ordinary circumstances, it would be a good idea to meet Putin in person and smooth out the relationship. The problem with Biden is that he’s already called Putin a killer. Is Putin really willing to work with Biden, or do Americans have good reason to be on edge about increased international tensions after this meeting?
