With the G7 Summit beginning in Cornwall tomorrow (11th June), the PM will today agree a new ‘Atlantic Charter’ with President Biden, pledging to work together with the United States to tackle global challenges and build a more prosperous future based on our shared values.
The original 1941 Atlantic Charter helped the world recover following a devastating war - today we face another major global challenge - how to recover from the pandemic.
That is why we are today announcing a new 2021 Atlantic Charter with the US, which will outline eight key areas of cooperation, including defending democracy, tackling climate change, strengthening global defence as well as supporting the world’s recovery from the pandemic.
We will also agree to relaunch UK-US travel as soon as possible and strengthen our cooperation on international travel going forward, ensuring that we maintain crucial links with the US that create and sustain jobs across and throughout our countries. This agreement will form a foundation of the global recovery from the pandemic, helping deliver a better future for the British people.
The PM has said:
"The agreements President Biden and I will make today, rooted as they are in our shared values and outlook, will form the foundation of a sustainable global recovery. Eighty years ago the US President and British Prime Minister stood together promising a better future. Today we do the same."
