New Atlantic Charter Renews “Special” U.S.–British Relationship

The new Atlantic Charter signed by U.S. President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on June 10 cements trade, travel, and tech ties between the two countries. It also renews the “special relationship” between the United States and the United Kingdom, speaking to commonalities between the longtime allies that may have been lost in recent decades. For instance, U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower refused to support the British invasion of the Suez Canal and British Prime Minister Harold Wilson came under enormous pressure from the United States to send troops to Vietnam, a directive he repeatedly ignored. More recently, following a strong partnership during the second Gulf War, ties between the two countries became strained over foreign policy issues. IISD
