According to Agence France Presse, London, January 23, the British Prime Minister’s office said that Johnson and Biden vowed to deepen relations and cooperate to tackle climate change in their first dialogue since their inauguration on Saturday local time.
In a statement, Downing Street said Johnson congratulated Biden on his inauguration and the two leaders look forward to deepening the close alliance between the two countries;.
Johnson is reported to be the first European leader to receive a call from Biden. Biden had previously spoken to Canadian and Mexican leaders. Johnson became the first leader outside North America to talk to Biden. &”The original call has been advanced by two days & quot;, which will be seen as a shot in the arm for the special relationship between Britain and the United States.
According to the report, the dialogue seems to be aimed at warming up the cold relationship between the two people, because Biden once called Johnson a “clone of body and emotion” of former US President trump in 2019;. Biden has also been critical of Johnson’s brexit policy.
Johnson warmly welcomed Biden’s decision to let the United States return to the Paris climate agreement and rejoin the World Health Organization, the report said.
The two leaders also reiterated their commitment to the NATO alliance, the report said.
