President Biden's visit to the UK last week, which was his first overseas visit as President, demonstrated the significant synergy between our international priorities and those of the US Administration. This included a new Atlantic Charter that was agreed on 10 June, and which will set the tone for UK-US international leadership in the 21st century, including in the context of pandemic recovery. We also issued a Joint UK-US Statement on 10 June, which demonstrates our close relationship, built on open trade, vibrant democracies, and cooperation on global issues from COVID-19 to climate change.
