The United States remains our primary ally, with a strong Defence relationship developed over the last century's. We will continue to work with the United States on all of our shared interests, from tackling Covid-19 to countering terrorism, and collaborating closely through our Presidencies of COP26 and the G7 next year. Furthermore, the United States has been the backbone of the NATO Alliance for over 70 years and we look forward to working together on strengthening and driving forward the modernisation of the Alliance.
