President Joe Biden's first face-to-face meeting as president with Russian President Vladimir Putin was underway Wednesday in Geneva following a weeklong European tour in which Biden reaffirmed U.S. alliances and reiterated his message that "America is back" on the world stage.

Biden's first international trip as president culminates with highly anticipated talks with Putin that are expected to last at least four hours, a senior administration official told reporters aboard Air Force One. The two leaders are expected to focus on nuclear arms, cyberattacks and human rights, the official told reporters on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss the summit.
