On Wednesday, US Vice President Kamala Harris met with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to discuss support for Israel’s right to defend itself as well as the urgent need to increase the flow of humanitarian aid into Gaza.
The two presidents also discussed “collaborating” on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Ukraine’s continuous support.
“Today, I met with Prime Minister @RishiSunak and discussed our support for Israel’s right to defend itself and the urgent need to increase the flow of humanitarian assistance into Gaza. Together we are committed to helping civilians in need,” Harris posted on X.
“PM Sunak and I reaffirmed the importance of our strong and enduring partnership. We also discussed our continued support to the people of Ukraine and our work together on AI — including how our new AI Safety Institutes will collaborate with each other,” she added.
After the terror group launched an attack on Tel Aviv on October 7, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has repeatedly stated that the UK supports Israel’s right to defend itself in accordance with international law and to battle Hamas.
“I want to share the deep condolences of the British people and stress that we absolutely support Israel’s right to defend itself in line with international law, to go after Hamas…We also recognise that the Palestinian people are victims of Hamas too,” the British PM said while delivering a joint statement alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu post their private meeting at the prime minister’s office in Jerusalem last week.
