On the evening of September 6, a telephone conversation took place between the new British PM Liz Truss and US president Joe Biden. According to Downing Street, the parties discussed the need for cooperation, agreed to strengthen cooperation to counteract the damage caused to the global economy and democracy by Putin's actions, and reaffirmed their commitment to ensuring the fiasco of Russia in Ukraine.
"The prime minister and president Biden reflected on the strength of the special relationship [between the US and Britain]. They agreed that the partnership between our countries, strengthened by our shared values, is critical to protecting and advancing freedom and democracy worldwide. They agreed to develop these ties, including by strengthening our deep defence alliance through NATO and AUKUS; leaders reaffirmed their commitment to strengthening global freedom, addressing the risks posed by democracies and ensuring Putin's defeat in Ukraine," Downing Street.
The release of the White House following the Truss-Biden dialogue thematically duplicates Downing Street's statement.
"President Biden and prime minister Truss discussed the importance of continuing to work closely together to address global challenges, including supporting Ukraine in defending itself against Russian aggression, addressing challenges posed by China, preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons, and ensuring sustainable and affordable energy resources," the White House.
President Biden also congratulated Liz Truss on her appointment to the post and expressed hope for strengthening cooperation on global challenges and assistance to Ukraine.
"Congratulations to Prime Minister Liz Truss. I look forward to deepening the special relationship between our countries and working in close cooperation on global challenges, including continued support for Ukraine as it defends itself against Russian aggression," Joe Biden on Twitter.
