During their first phone call together, President Biden and the newly appointed Prime Minister of Britain, Rishi Sunak, came to an agreement to work with each other to assist Ukraine & stand against China, according to a statement released by the White House.
Sunak became Britain’s third-party leader this year.
According to a readout of the call released by the White House on Tuesday, the two leaders underlined the “special connection” that exists between their nations and said they will work together to improve global security and prosperity.
The United States government views China as its primary geopolitical and economic competitor on the international scene, and Vice President Biden and Foreign Minister Sunak agreed to “face the challenges presented by China.”
In its own readout of the conversation, Downing Street said that the two “addressed the scope of UK-US collaboration, both bilaterally and also in areas like the Indo-Pacific,” in addition to the more difficult matter of Northern Ireland.
