First words in a new chapter of the relationship between Britain and the USA

Yesterday, the Prime Minister had his first phone call with Joe Biden since he was inaugurated as President of the United States, in which they discussed our shared priorities moving forwards. 

  • Building on our long history of cooperation in security and defence, the leaders recommitted to the NATO alliance and the Prime Minister welcomed the President’s decision to re-join the Paris Agreement on climate change, the World Health organization and the COVAX programme. The two leaders also spoke about a potential free trade deal between our two countries, with the Prime Minister reiterating his intention to resolve existing trade issues as soon as possible.
  • The Prime Minister and the President also discussed how the UK and the US can deepen the close alliance between our nations and work closely together through the G7, G20 and COP26 this year.
