Kathmandu : American President Joe Biden has arrived in the United Kingdom to participate in the NATO Summit to be held in Lithuania.

Biden’s visit to the UK is seen as significant due to the controversy surrounding the decision to send ‘cluster bombs’ to Ukraine.

Both the UK and Canada have expressed opposition to the US supplying cluster bombs to Ukraine.

As the use of cluster bombs could cause harm to civilians, the two nations have opposed the US action, and Biden’s visit to the UK is being closely watched.

While in the UK, Biden will also have a courtesy meeting with the British monarch, Queen Charles. Additionally, he is scheduled to meet British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Monday.

There is speculation that discussions will take place between Biden and Sunak regarding including Ukraine in the NATO Summit.

Prior to Biden’s visit to the UK, Prime Minister Sunak highlighted the importance of the UK being the most significant trade, defense, and strategic partner of the United States, emphasizing the significance of Biden’s visit to the UK.

From the UK, Biden will travel to Lithuania on Tuesday. This will be the first time the summit will take place after Finland’s inclusion in NATO.
