February 4th – Comprehensively, Australian Broadcasting Corporation and Sky News reported on the 4th that Australian Prime Minister Morrison talked to US President Biden on the 4th local time, which was the first call between the two sides since Biden took office.
Morrison said the two discussed issues including post-coronavirus economic recovery and climate change policies.
Morrison said: “As you expected, we discussed the Indo-Pacific region and discussed ways to achieve net zero carbon dioxide emissions through technology.
Morrison also said that the two talked about the “five-eyed alliance relationship and expanding the five-eyed alliance agenda”.
