President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin have begun their high-stakes summit at an 18th century villa on the banks of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, the final event of Biden’s first foreign trip as commander in chief.

Putin and Biden will hold separate press conferences following their meeting.
