British Prime Minister Liz Truss will hold a bilateral meeting with US President Joe Biden on Wednesday at the UN General Assembly, her office said on Saturday. The couple were previously due to meet in Downing Street on Sunday.
No reason was given for the postponement of what will be the first chiefs meeting since Truss won the Tory leadership race and became prime minister.
Biden is among many leaders heading to London ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral on Monday. Truss is still scheduled to meet Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Polish President Andrzej Duda on Sunday.
She met Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern at the government country residence in Chevening on Saturday.
Truss also had a phone call with UAE President Mohamed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan. A call between Truss and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is expected to take place on Saturday evening.
