US President Joe Biden has directly challenged his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on a range of human rights issues. This was stated by the adviser to the American leader on national security, Jake Sullivan.
President Biden has directly challenged Putin on a range of human rights issues. This also applies to the unjust detention of Alexei Navalny and attempts to obstruct the work of Radio Free Europe./Radio Liberty”, — said the adviser.
He added that Washington has outlined “clear limits” for Moscow to act in cyberspace.
We feel that we have concluded this trip with a common strategy with our allies and have clearly outlined our limits and capabilities for Russia. Just in case they don’t take action against the criminals who are attacking our critical infrastructure, “ Sullivan explained.
According to him, after the summit, Washington saw “the potential for cooperation with Russia on Syria.”
They had a discussion on Syria, particularly focused on humanitarian access issues. President Biden noted that there are millions of hungry, needy people in the north-east and north-west of Syria, and the presence of humanitarian corridors implemented by the UN, especially the one that is open now and should be resumed in July, is extremely important for helping people, “ the adviser stressed.
President Putin did not commit to how the Russians would vote on the UN resolution in July, but it was a constructive discussion, he said.
