The highly-anticipated summit comes as relations between the US and Russia are, as described by both sides, at a rock bottom.
Biden, 78, and Putin, 68, are expected to spend several hours discussing a range of topics that officials on both sides hope will heal divisions between the two countries.
The White House has said the meeting is aimed at achieving ‘stability’. The agenda for the summit includes discussions on arms control, cyber security, diplomatic restrictions, imprisoned Americans, foreign affairs and regional conflicts.
Last weekend, Putin told state TV there were ‘issues where we can work together’ with the US and indicated his plans to talk about new nuclear arms control, regional conflicts including Syria and Libya, and climate change.
Also ahead of the meeting, Biden described the bond between the two nations as at its ‘lowest point’, but added that ‘we are not looking for conflict’.
