Biden calls UK closest ally and closest friend in meeting with PM Sunak

U.S. President Joe Biden said on Wednesday Britain was America’s closest ally and closest friend, during his first face-to-face meeting with Rishi Sunak since he became British Prime Minister.

Meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali, Sunak said the partnership between the two countries was unique and their values and interests were aligned.

At the same time, the leaders of the Group of 20 (G20) economies joined a summit for the second day on Wednesday, although the schedule was disrupted by an emergency meeting to discuss reports of a missile landing in Polish territory near Ukraine.

U.S. President Joe Biden said after the meeting on the Indonesian island of Bali that the United States and its NATO allies were investigating the blast but early information suggested it may not have been caused by a missile fired from Russia.

NATO member Poland had said a rocket killed two people on Tuesday in eastern Poland near Ukraine, and it summoned Russia’s ambassador to Warsaw for an explanation after Moscow denied it was responsible.
