09 Nov How the World Reacted to Joe Biden’s Victory – Herald Sun
In the wake of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the US Presidential elections, Director of the British Foreign Policy Group, Sophia Gaston, spoke to the Herald Sun about what the victory means for the world.
Sophia said: “it’s no surprise that Boris Johnson has singled out climate change as a key area of cooperation with a Biden administration. This is a specific area on which Biden and Johnson are aligned, and which Trump and Johnson disagreed.
