The Wall Street Journal: Biden, Johnson to seek resumption of travel between U.S. and U.K.

PLYMOUTH, England — President Joe 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 Johnson’s office.

The charter, a riff on the historic joint statement made by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941 as their vision for a democratic world post-World War II, will be unveiled Thursday. The meeting will be the first between the two nations’ leaders since Biden’s election.

Following the Thursday meeting, 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 U.K. as soon as possible.

The pandemic ground most global travel, including between the two countries, to a halt. As more people get vaccinated, countries around the world are lifting restrictions, allowing for business and leisure travel.
