Daily US Times: The alliance between the United States and the United Kingdom should be known as the “indestructible relationship”, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said after meeting US President Joe Biden for the first time.

He said in an interview with BBC that he had “terrific” talks with Mr Biden, who has travelled to Cornwall for the G7 summit of world leaders.

The G7 summit begins later, with climate change and vaccines on the agenda.

Boris Johnson insisted President Biden had not rebuked him over post-Brexit tensions in Northern Ireland.

However, the US president is said to have “deep concern” over the situation.

The summit will see the leaders of Germany, Italy, Canada, France, Japan, the US and UK gathering in person for the first time since the pandemic.

Ahead of the meeting, the British Prime Minister pledged the UK would donate more than 100 million vaccines to poorer countries in the next year, while Mr Biden promised 500 million doses of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccines to 92 low and middle-income countries and the African Union.

The G7 countries are expected to collectively agree to provide a billion doses of coronavirus vaccine in an effort to end the pandemic in 2022.

Mr Johnson said he thought of the association as “an indestructible relationship” or the “deep and meaningful relationship”.

He said: “It’s a relationship that has endured for a very long time, and has been an important part of peace and prosperity both in Europe and around the world.”
