Joe Biden and Boris Johnson talk about trade and trains at a meeting at the White House

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson discussed climate change dangers on Tuesday and joked about train trippers during a meeting in Oval Office destined to highlight the Alliance between States United and Great Britain.

Biden told Johnson that he expected the United Kingdom to come to a conference on global warming at the end of this year.

"It's fantastic to see the United States really taking a step forward and showing an advantage, a real, real advantage," said Johnson, referring to the issue of global warming. With Biden, the United States renewed its promises to reduce greenhouse gases and promised to finance projects to combat climate change.

Johnson took the Amtrak train from the United Nations General Assembly in New York to Washington for the meeting. "They love you," Johnson told Biden, apparently referring to the railway staff of the United States. Biden was a regular traveler for more than 30 years.

"We are going to talk about trade," said Biden when asked about a possible commercial agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States, which would be of great importance for the UK after Brexit.

Johnson met for the first time with Vice President Kamala Harris, who said that the United States and Britain are more interconnected than ever. Addressing the pandemic, dealing with climate change and defending democracy around the world remain the main priorities for both countries, Harris said.

Johnson praised the role of the US Army at the "Aerial Bridge of Kabul" and thanked the US government for lifting the ban last year on imports of British beef imposed after an outbreak of crazy cow disease.

The Johnson team considers the visit as a triumph, which shows that Great Britain can prosper on the world stage after its divorce last year of the European Union. It is produced in the middle of a rupture between the United States and France, EU rival, in which Great Britain played a crucial role.
