White House says Joe Biden and Anthony Albanese will discuss strengthening collaboration

US President Joe Biden will receive Prime Minister Anthony Albanese at the White House.

The White House said the two would discuss strengthening collaboration on critical issues “to ensure the alliance is well equipped to respond to evolving regional and global challenges” during the Oct. 25 official visit.

Albanese will be in the United States between October 23 and 26 on his first official trip to Washington since taking office.

“Australia and the United States have a long-standing relationship, based on deep friendship and trust and a shared commitment to peace, the rule of law and the values ​​of democracy,” he said.

“My visit is an important opportunity to discuss our ambitious climate and clean energy transition, and the shared goal of a strong, secure and prosperous Indo-Pacific.”

The White House said the visit would “underscore the deep and enduring alliance between the United States and Australia and the two nations’ shared commitment to supporting an open, stable and prosperous Indo-Pacific.”

The president was due to visit Australia for the Quad leaders’ summit earlier this year before domestic debt ceiling negotiations with Congress forced him to cancel his trip.

Albanese traveled to the United States to announce how Australia would acquire nuclear-powered submarines under the trilateral AUKUS deal alongside Biden and UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in March.

The White House will also host Pacific Island leaders toward the end of the year, as Washington seeks to strengthen its position in the region.
