UK PM Keir Starmer meets Joe Biden during NATO summit, says 'UK-US relationship stronger than ever'

Britain’s new prime minister, Keir Starmer, on Wednesday hailed the special relationship between the UK and U.S. at his first one-on-one meeting with President Joe Biden, where the two also celebrated England’s soccer win in the semi-finals of Euro 2024. Days after Starmer was elected in a landslide, he joined Biden in the White House’s Oval Office. The U.S. leader joked that England’s victory over the Netherlands on Wednesday, which put England in the final, was down to Britain’s new leader. Starmer was in Washington for a meeting of NATO leaders, his first international summit. With Biden, he spoke of Britain’s historical and cultural ties with the United States, a connection that has been termed the “special relationship.”
