New UK Prime Minister Liz Truss has canceled a pre-scheduled meeting with US President Joe Biden.
Joe Biden arrived in the United Kingdom on Saturday to attend the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on Monday. Liz Truss was scheduled to hold a bilateral meeting with Biden on Sunday.
However, the reason why the meeting was canceled was not informed.
After the Queen’s funeral, Liz Truss will travel to New York to attend the UN General Assembly. A bilateral meeting between the two leaders is planned to be held there next Wednesday.
Queen Elizabeth II died last week two days after Liz Truss took over from the Queen. Leaders from all but Russia, Myanmar and Belarus have arrived in the UK ahead of the Queen’s funeral. Therefore, analysts see the queen’s funeral ceremony as an opportunity for Lease Truss to improve bilateral relations with different countries of the world.
