PLYMOUTH, England—President Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined a vision for U.S.-U.K. relations centered on promoting democracy and countering the influence of autocratic states during their first in-person meeting. The two leaders on Thursday agreed on a wide-ranging document that charts a path forward from a global pandemic that has killed millions, as the virus continues spreading in some parts of the world. It calls for investments in science and technology, renewed efforts to address climate change and improved defenses against global health threats. The two-page document—dubbed the “Atlantic Charter,” after the joint statement made by then-Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941 when they set out their approach to a post-World War II world—includes few specific policy commitments. “We must ensure that democracies—starting with our own—can deliver on solving the critical challenges of our time,” the new charter states.

As part of the agreement, Biden and Johnson will also work to reopen travel between the U.S. and U.K. as soon as possible. U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed the updated Atlantic Charter agreement aboard Air Force One while en route to the U.K. Wednesday for Biden's first trip abroad as president. “There'll be a refresher of the Atlantic Charter, which is now 80 years old,” Sullivan told reporters. And while the Atlantic Charter represents the latest chapter in the "special relationship" between Washington and London, the British government said this week that Johnson doesn't like that term. An aide told The Atlantic in a profile about Johnson that the prime minister thought the phrase appeared needy.

gives the pair an opportunity — and incentive — to work toward common ground as Johnson is eager for trade agreements. Johnson, until recently, was so unwaveringly close to Trump that it would seem hard for this not to color his relations with Biden. Back in 2019, after Johnson's Conservative Party won a majority in Parliament, Biden called the new British prime minister a "physical and emotional clone" of Trump. So Biden should be cultivating his relationship with Macron as carefully as the one with Johnson. These relationships across the ocean require constant reassurance, particularly in the wake of the four years of the Trump administration.

PLYMOUTH, England—President Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will meet in person for the first time Thursday, in a test of U.S.-U.K. relations amid the coronavirus pandemic, Brexit and growing tensions over Northern Ireland. The two leaders are expected to announce a wide-ranging “Atlantic Charter” aimed at solidifying trans-Atlantic relations. Before their formal meeting, Messrs. Johnson and Biden will view the 1941 Atlantic Charter, which will be on display in the country of Cornwall. At issue is a post-Brexit agreement aimed at avoiding a hard border between Ireland, which is in the EU, and Northern Ireland, which is in the U.K. Instead, the U.K. and the EU have agreed to be border checks on goods heading from Britain to Northern Ireland, effectively placing a border of sorts within the U.K.

Mr. Biden and Mr. Johnson are expected to announce what is being billed as a renewal of the Atlantic Charter — the declaration of post-war cooperation that Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt laid out in 1941 during World War II. Mr. Biden opposed Britain’s drive leave the European Union, a push that Mr. Johnson helped lead. Mr. Biden and Mr. Johnson will meet on Thursday afternoon at Carbis Bay in Cornwall, before Friday’s meeting of Group of 7 leading industrial nations. Mildenhall, he called his weeklong diplomatic overture “essential,” saying that no nation acting alone could meet the world’s challenges. Mr. Biden also cast his trip in broader terms as an effort to rally the United States and its allies in an existential struggle between democracy and autocracy.

PLYMOUTH, England—President Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will seek to ease Covid-19 travel restrictions as part of a wide-ranging “Atlantic Charter” before this week’s Group of Seven meeting, according to Mr. Johnson’s office. Following the Thursday meeting, Messrs. Biden and Johnson are expected to announce the formation of a task force with the goal of reopening travel between the U.S. and the UK as soon as possible. As more people get vaccinated, countries around the world are lifting restrictions, allowing for business and leisure travel. In March 2020, then-President Donald Trump barred most travel into the U.S. from the UK by noncitizens. In recent months, major airlines have urged the Biden administration to lift the restrictions.

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and President Joe Biden will meet Thursday ahead of the Group of Seven (G-7) summit that begins Friday in Cornwall, in southwest England.

Before the pandemic, more than 5 million Britons visited the United States and more than 4.5 million Americans visited Britain every year - more than any other country. A new travel task force would make recommendations on safely reopening travel and ensuring that Britain and the United States work closely on international travel policy going forward. "Links between the UK and US are not only crucial for our people, they create and sustain jobs across and throughout our two countries," the statement said.

Biden mentioned the US-UK "special relationship" on a call with Johnson, The Atlantic reported. Johnson told Biden he didn't like using the term, the outlet said. According to the White House readout of the call, Biden "conveyed his intention to strengthen the special relationship between our countries." Nicholas Kamm/Associated PressThe term "special relationship" is widely attributed to Britain's wartime prime minister Winston Churchill, whom Johnson wrote a book about and is known to idolize. Since becoming president, Biden has made it clear that the UK's stance on Northern Ireland is jeopardizing good relations.

“The Oval Office decoration often reflects a president’s view of history and the nature of his hopes for the future,” said Jon Meacham, the presidential biographer whom Biden asked to advise on art for the Oval Office. No painted works by artists of color have been prominently displayed in the Oval Office over the last six decades, according to curators. She created the White House Historical Association, hired the first White House curator and established various committees to assist with preserving art. At times, the Oval Office has been more functional and homey than it is today. Did you notice anything different in that last photo of Biden’s Oval Office?

In early 1942, England was in danger of being cut off by Nazi U-boats, which were attacking resupply convoys in the Atlantic. To protect convoys as they crossed, a British inventor came up with a plan to build an aircraft carrier out of ice. Project HabakkukIn 1942, Geoffrey Pyke, a British inventor working for Combined Operations Headquarters, thought he had the solution. The development meant that the carrier could be built from the ground up and not made out of an iceberg. Most impressive of all, its air wing would have numbered over 200 aircraft, including fighters and heavy bombers.

Meeting Mr. Roosevelt was like, as Winston Churchill said, “opening your first bottle of champagne”; meeting Mr. Biden is like one’s first encounter with a tail-wagging therapy dog. Mr. Roosevelt essentially invented intimacy in mass communications. He recalled that when he was writing his first Fireside Chat, he looked out the window of the White House and saw the inaugural scaffolding being taken down. Whatever the future holds, Mr. Biden and Mr. Roosevelt are now fused in history by the size and breadth of their progressive ambitions. Mr. Biden was lucky enough to have been elected when what the historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. called “the cycles of American history” are spinning left.

Artillery salutes took place across the U.K. to mark the death of Prince Philip as tributes to Queen Elizabeth’s husband of 73 years continued to flow in from around the world. Royal Navy ships at sea were also participating to acknowledge the prince’s role as an officer during World War II. The custom is to fire 21 rounds, with an additional 20 rounds added when fired from a royal park. The funeral for Prince Philip, who died Friday at age 99, has been set for April 17 and will be a more restrained affair partly because of Covid-19 restrictions and because he preferred a low-key ceremony. There will be no lying in state and no state funeral, the last of which was for Churchill.

LONDON — Gun salutes marking the death of Britain’s Prince Philip are taking place across the United Kingdom and at sea. Salutes are taking place by units from London, Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh, the capitals of the four nations that make up the U.K. Similar gun salutes were fired to mark the death of Queen Victoria in 1901 and Winston Churchill in 1965. As a teenager he joined the Royal Navy and graduated from the Britannia Royal Naval College as a top cadet. After the war, Philip continued to serve until he left the royal navy in 1952 the ministry said.

Similar gun salutes were held in 1901 and in 1965 for the deaths of Queen Victoria and Winston Churchill, and are a tradition dating back to the 18th century. The funeral for Prince Philip, who died Friday aged 99, will be a more restrained affair partly because of Covid-19 restrictions and also because he preferred a low-key ceremony. There will be no lying in state and no state funeral, the last of which was for Churchill. A traditional sign announcing the death of the prince and placed on the gates of Buckingham Palace was later removed to avoid attracting onlookers.

If you’re an American who worries that your country’s influence is waning, you may not be heartened to learn that it isn’t. After last year’s killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, angry demonstrators in Britain, emulating Black Lives Matter protests in the U.S., took to city streets. In the port city of Bristol, a statue of a local 17th-century philanthropist was toppled because he also traded in slaves. In London’s Parliament Square, the words “Was a Racist” were daubed on the plinth of Winston Churchill’s statue. In July the government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson responded by impaneling the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities.
