Deputy Secretary Campbell’s Meetings in the United Kingdom

The below is attributable to Spokesperson Matthew Miller:

On May 1, in London, Deputy Secretary of State Kurt M. Campbell held a series of bilateral meetings with Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office counterparts Permanent Under Secretary Sir Philip Barton and the UK AUKUS team, as well as Cabinet Office colleagues National Security Advisor Sir Tim Barrow and Deputy National Security Advisor Sarah Macintosh.  They discussed challenges and opportunities in the Indo-Pacific region, as well as next steps to advance the AUKUS security partnership.  They reaffirmed the United States’ and United Kingdom’s continued support for Ukraine, including confronting the PRC’s support for Russia’s defense-industrial base.  They further underscored the need for an immediate release of the hostages held by Hamas and a sustainable ceasefire that allows for a surge of the urgently needed humanitarian assistance to be delivered safely through Gaza.
